Oficial Principal de Finanzas Jimmy Patronis: Estafadores Arrestados por Fraude de Seguro Dental de $2.8 Millones

MIAMI – Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis announced the arrest of Renate Manns, owner of International Dental Group, Inc., along with five associates in an alleged $2.8 million insurance fraud scheme based in Miami-Dade County.
 
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “Let me be clear: If you commit fraud in Florida, you will be caught and you will be thrown in jail. I am continuing my fight against fraud to protect Floridians from skyrocketing insurance premiums.”
 
CFO Patronis’ fraud Investigators discovered Manns originally employed six licensed dentists at her practice. Once the dentists left the practice, Manns allegedly used their names and license information to bill insurance companies for fraudulent dental treatments between 2014 and 2017. One license used in the scheme belonged to a dentist who passed away in November 2013.
 
Manns was arrested on January 29, along with four of her associates: Raquel Soca, Blanca Nieves Bermudez, Carmen Elena Perez and her husband Danilo Alain Perez for their involvement in the fraud scheme. On January 31, the fifth associate Macia Rocio turned herself over to law enforcement for her involvement. All participants face multiple charges including identity theft, organized fraud, insurance fraud, and grand theft.
