“Greensburg Woman Charged with Health Care Fraud
PITTSBURGH— A resident of Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of health care fraud and obtaining a controlled substance through fraud, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.
The two-count indictment named Diane S. Bundy, 38, at 1096 Brick Hill Road, Greensburg, Pennsylvania, as the sole defendant.
According to the indictment, from December 2008 to October 2011, Bundy forged prescriptions for Schedule III and Schedule IV drugs, presented them to pharmacies and used the insurance provided by UPMC For You, UPMC Health Plan, First Energy Corporation, Gateway Health Plan, Coventry Health Plan, and Highmark insurance companies to pay for the fraudulent and forged prescriptions.
The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not more than 14 year in prison, a fine of $500,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.
Assistant United States Attorney Nelson P. Cohen is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Pennsylvania State Police (Greensburg and Uniontown Stations), and the Greensburg Police Department conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.
An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.”
