Miami-Dade Clinic Owner Arrested for PIP Fraud

May 27, 2014

Aurora Hernandez was arrested on charges of organizing and billing for a staged accident, known as Personal Injury Protection (PIP) fraud, according to Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater. Hernandez’s arrest is the latest in a string of arrests resulting from Operation No-Med Services, which dates back to May 2013 and involves four accident clinics in Miami-Dade County.

In May 2013, the Department of Financial Services’ Division of Insurance Fraud conducted an investigation called Operation No-Med Services, which has led to the arrests of a medical doctor, two clinic owners, five medical licensees, six staged accident organizers and six others. Hernandez, who operated Magic Hands Medical Services, faces a maximum of 235 years in prison for her involvement in the staged accidents.
