Ocean Search for Fraud Suspect Called Off
The search for an overdue boater wanted for Medicare fraud has been called off and officials suspect he has fled the country, the Miami Herald reports. Robert A. Garcia-Esquerro’s wife reported him missing May 4 to the U.S. Coast Guard, a day after he left the Key West Marina for a fishing trip.
Garcia-Esquerro is wanted on Medicare fraud charges related to his work at several Miami-Dade mental health clinics, according to the Herald. One psychotherapy clinic, owned by his father, billed Medicare more than $10 million filed annually, the Herald reports.
