Medical Equipment Suppliers Convicted

Ikechukwu Udeokor, owner of Meik Medical Equipment and Supply, and manager Ayodeji Fasonu were convicted for engaging in a scheme to defraud Medicare Advantage and Medicaid managed care plans of over $3.8 million. They billed for hundreds of expensive patient support systems that were never provided to patients or caregivers. These support systems included large devices that were designed to assist with lifting immobile patients and patients in nursing homes. In reality, Udeokoro and Fasonu provided patients with recliner chairs that had a seat lift feature. Read a story from and a Department of Justice press release.
