Tampa Clinic Owner Sentenced for Insurance Fraud

May 13, 2014

Dailin Rojas Perez entered a plea agreement and was sentenced to 24 months house arrest because of her involvement in a major insurance fraud scheme at a Tampa accident clinic, according to an announcement by Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater. Perez is also required to pay $350,000 in restitution to victim insurance carriers and nearly $40,000 in investigative costs.

She was charged in September with racketeering and money laundering involving more than $340,000 in fraudulent proceeds.

An investigation by the Department of Financial Services’ Division of Insurance Fraud found that Rojas Perez’s company, Today’s Medical Marketing, LLC worked with Medical Therapy Practitioners to fraudulently bill insurance carriers. The fraudulent charges included services not rendered, services procured as a result of staged automobile crashes, services for patients who had no injuries and services not compensable because the business license was obtained fraudulently.
