A Streamwood woman who managed an in-home health care business is facing several federal Medicare fraud charges.
Diana Jocelyn Gumila, 45, is accused of "double-billing" Medicare or billing for services that were unnecessary, according to court records.
Gumila, a registered nurse since 1991, operated Doctor At Home and Xpress Mobile Imaging, both based in Schaumburg. She was arrested Tuesday.
According to the indictment, Medicare claims from more than 300 home health agencies were submitted by just four Doctor At Home physicians between 2013 and May 2014 for services to about 4,000 patients. Those agencies were paid more than $20 million as a result of those claims.
Prosecutors allege Doctor At Home's visits were billed to Medicare "as if they were more complicated," thus "allegedly causing Medicare to pay more than $1,000 a month on many patients simply so a nurse can visit once a week and conduct a basic check."
Gumila faces 10 years in prison if convicted.
