DALLAS (March 17, 2014) Dr. Nicolas Alfonso Padron of Garland was sentenced Monday to almost five years in federal prison and ordered to pay about $9 million in restitution to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services he pleaded guilty in a health care fraud case, U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldana said in a news release.
Padron, 54, pleaded guilty in September 2013 to one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud stemming from his role as medical director of A Medical House Calls, which provided home doctor visits to Medicare patients, Saldana said.
Two co-defendants, who owned the company, were convicted last year of one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and 13 counts of health care fraud.
Their sentencing is set for March 31.
