Rowlett Man Sentenced for Healthcare Fraud

Olalekan Sorunke, 40, of Rowlett, was sentenced last week by U.S. District Judge Jorge A. Solis to 30 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $691,175 in restitution following his guilty plea in February to one count of health care fraud, stemming from the operation of Dallas-based Lincoln Medical Supply Inc. Solis ordered that Sorunke surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on July 10.

Lincoln was a durable medical equipment (DME) supply company. According to court documents, Sorunke maintained a valid Medicare group provider number to submit Medicare claims for DME. However, he submitted Medicare claims that were not medically necessary or were not provided to Medicare beneficiaries.
