Dailin Rojas Perez, who was charged in September with racketeering and money laundering, has entered into a plea agreement and will serve 24 months house arrest for her connection to a major insurance fraud scheme at a Tampa accident clinic, Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater announced.
The 30-year old Rojas Perez is also required to pay $350,000 in restitution to the insurance carriers who were deceptively billed, as well as almost $40,000 in investigative costs. Fraudulent proceeds involved more than $340,000, according to her indictment last fall.
Through an investigation by the Department of Financial Services’ Division of Insurance Fraud, Rojas Perez’s company—Today’s Medical Marketing, LLC—conspired with Medical Therapy Practitioners to fraudulently bill insurance carriers. The deceptive charges included billing for: 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.
“I am proud of our investigators for bringing this fraudster to justice,” CFO Atwater said. “We will not tolerate anyone who commits insurance fraud and causes the rates of hard-working Floridians to increase.”
