The FLPIPGuide previously reported that Dr. Lherisson Domond, 82, was arrested earlier this year for acting as the straw owner of Unity Pain and Injury Center in Orlando. The Florida Division of Insurance Fraud (DIF) recently revealed that Domond also fronted as the straw owner of Blesscare Chiro Center, also in Orlando.
Blesscare, an unlicensed clinic, was operated by Fortunard Dieuveillant Fonrose, 42. Medical billings totaling in excess of $86,000 were generated between May 2012 and November 2014 under Fonrose’s management, according to DIF reports.
Domond was behind the unlicensed Tamarac clinic of J.J. Health & Wellness also, according to DIF. Jonas Fils, 52, and Obinson Louis, 37, were reportedly the real owners of the clinic, which illegally billed almost $72,000 from May to September of 2013.
Keeping with the pattern of interconnections, Louis also operated the unlicensed Oakland Park clinic of Innovative Medical Rehab Center.
Overall, seven individuals were arrested for the fraudulent operation of the four unlicensed medical clinics.
The clinics were behind personal injury protection (PIP) fraud schemes responsible for more than $243,000 in illegal billings. DIF investigations are on-going, and additional arrests are expected.
