 The Federal Bureau of Investigation raided a Boca Raton medical-supply company early Wednesday, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. 

The company, Med-Care Diabetes and Medical Supplies, Inc., was the subject of a 2013 U.S. Senate subcommittee hearing for possible Medicare fraud and has ties to Daniel Porush, a man who helped inspire a character depicted in the movie “The Wolf of Wall Street”.

According to the Sun Sentinel, an audit by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service showed that out of a sample of 590 claims made by the company, 400 were “improper” and the company received $146,689 in overpayments.
