Ventnor firefighter latest to plead in health care fraud case
Updated: May 8
A Ventnor firefighter has admitted to being an owner of the company that reaped a percentage of the multimillion-dollar health benefits fraud scheme. Corey Sutor, 37, was in federal court Wednesday to accept a plea deal in the case, the U.S. Attorney’s Office confirmed to BreakingAC. “Company 1” caused the state to pay more than $2 million in fraudulent claims. Sutor made $150,397.79, according to the information in his plea. Sutor would recruit state employees for their insurance information to use to make claims for expensive compounding medications that were not necessary. These “patients” would never see a doctor. Sutor is the 23rd to take a plea deal.
