Michigan Man Arrested on Health Care Fraud Charge

BUFFALO—U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that Fitzgerald Anthony Hudson, 51, of Dearborn Heights, Michigan, was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with health care fraud. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years’ imprisonment and a fine of $250,000.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron J. Mango, who is handling the case, stated that according to the criminal complaint, in October 2007, the defendant obtained a New York state medical license. Thereafter, from August of 2008 to August of 2010, Hudson provided medical care in the Western District of New York at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville, New York and the Nicholas H. Noyes Memorial Hospital in Dansville, New York. The defendant allegedly obtained his medical license by listing on his New York state application that he graduated from York University-Facility of Science, North York, Ontario, Canada, when he had not. In addition, Hudson failed to list that he had been dismissed from the Warren Hospital Family Practice residency program in July 2003.

As a result of his fraudulently obtained medical license, the defendant was improperly reimbursed approximately $200,000 under the Medicare Part-B and Part-D programs. Hudson was arrested today in Michigan, and an initial appearance on the charge has been scheduled for March 29, 2012 at 3 p.m. before United States Magistrate Judge H. Kenneth Schroeder, Jr.

The arrest is the culmination of an investigation on the part of special agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Christopher M. Piehota, Special Agent in Charge; and special agents of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General, Office of Investigations, under the direction of Thomas O’Donnell, Special Agent in Charge.

Any individuals wishing to report a concern regarding the defendant are encouraged to call the Medicare Fraud Hotline at 1-800-447-8477.

The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

    Remember to, keep up to date the actual introduce myself to perform and then posting issues like this. I am actually buff within your webpage!

  2. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I do not know who you are but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already ;) Cheers!

  3. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  4. Romanowski: Talk about pathetic. and wacko. Sling mud and name calling to avoid the truth of the issue: Destruction of freedom, the Constitution, and the rule of law. I agree with Hillary Clinton:December 28, 2010 | Associated Press”U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton led a chorus of political figures in the United States and Europe in condemning the ruling, saying that it raised “serious questions about selective prosecution and about the rule of law being overshadowed by political considerations.”

  5. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
