Manuel Barbeite

Defrauding the Medicare of $3.4M

Miami, Florida

A Miami doctor was sentenced to six-and-a-half years in prison and ordered to pay more than $3.4 million in restitution for his role in a Medicare and Medicaid HIV-infusion fraud.

Manuel Barbeite allegedly fabricated patient medical records and wrote prescriptions for expensive infusion drugs while working at Diagnostic Medical Choice, a Southwest Miami clinic.

He then sought federal and state reimbursement for the medications, which had not been provided as claimed.
