February 24, 2011

 

HOUSTON—A Nigerian man living in Texas has been sentenced to almost six years in prison in a nearly $1.6 million Medicare scam.

U.S. Attorney Jose Angel Moreno on Thursday announced the penalty for 50-year-old Mento Nnana Kaluanya.

Kaluanya was arrested in May 2009 in New Hampshire on charges that he set up a fraudulent medical supply company.

He pleaded guilty last March to health care fraud and aggravated identity theft. He was sentenced Wednesday in Houston, where he was a resident, to 70 months in federal prison.

Investigators say Kaluanya owned HyCentral Medical Supplies and Equipment in Derry, N.H., and billed the U.S. government for items not prescribed by doctors or not sought by patients.
