MIAMI (AP) - Authorities have arrested three Miami-Dade doctors who are accused of submitting millions of dollars in false claims for obsolete HIV therapy.
Physicians Carmen Lourdes del Cueto, Roberto Rodriguez and Carlos Garrido are in custody at the Federal Detention Center in Miami on conspiracy charges of submitting $10 million in phony bills for HIV drug-infusion services that patients didn't need or receive, according to a grand jury indictment.
The indictment said the three also were charged with laundering about $5 million in payments made by the federal health insurance program over four years.
It was not clear Monday whether any of the three had retained lawyers.
