California woman gets eight years in prison for recruiting patients for unnecessary surgeries

Los Angeles Times, August 12, 2009
An Orange County, CA, woman was sentenced to eight years in prison for recruiting people for unnecessary surgeries as part of a multi-state, $154-million medical insurance fraud scheme. Lilia Toscano, 41, pleaded guilty to 98 counts that included conspiracy, grand theft, tax evasion, insurance fraud and recruiting patients for a fee, the Orange County district attorney's office said. Toscano enlisted more than 245 people, most of them from California, to take part in the bogus surgeries in exchange for money or low-cost cosmetic surgeries.
