Michael Huynh, 66, of Northridge, was convicted last month of Social Security fraud for his role in a fraudulent healthcare reimbursement scheme. Huynh was convicted of one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and 11 counts of filing false tax returns.
Huynh was the office manager and part owner of a medical practice. Huynh provided bogus prescriptions to a pharmacist, who then submitted fraudulent reimbursement claims to Medicare and other insurance companies for drugs that were never dispensed. Pharmacist Farhad N. Dany Sharim was named as a co-conspirator in the scam, and was also convicted.
Between 2004 and 2009, the pair claimed more than $1M in fraudulent health care claims. Huynh also under-reported the clinic’s income by more than $1.6 million between 2007 and 2011.
