Little Rock - Christopher R. Thyer, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, announced today the guilty plea of Archibong Edem-Effoing, age 58, of Houston, Texas. Edem-Effoing pled guilty to one count of health care fraud in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1347. At the plea hearing held before United States District Judge Brian S. Miller, Edem-Effoing admitted that no later than December 22, 2007 and continuing through March 1, 2009, he engaged in a scheme to defraud Medicare by stealing the identity of a young Nigerian which he then used to apply for a Medicare Durable Medical Equipment (DME) supplier number. After receiving the DME number, he billed Medicare for arthritis kits and power wheelchairs that, in some cases, were not ordered by a physician, and which in other cases were never delivered.
