Seven Indian Americans charged in medical kickback scheme

July 30, 2013 05:18 PM

NEW YORK: Eight individuals, including seven Indian Americans, have been charged for their alleged involvement in a scheme in which over $2.3 million were paid in bribes and kickbacks to executives of a medical cost management company to secure business.


Those who were charged with paying the bribes are Sarvesh Dharayan, Sanjay Gupta, Venkata Atluri, Rangarajan Kumar, Vadan Kumar Kopalle and Dareen Siriani. The defendants charged with receiving bribes and kickbacks are Anil Singh and Keith Bush.


"Today's actions underscore our commitment to work with our law enforcement partners to bring to justice individuals who break the law out of greed," Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said July 17 after filing the charges.


Singh was the senior vice president and the CIO at the New York company, which provided nation-wide medical cost management solutions, including medical reimbursement services, and Bush was employed as the company's director of Database Administration.


Singh and Bush had considerable influence over the selection of vendors, specifically vendors of database administrators hired by the New York company. It has been alleged that from 2008 to September 2012, various individuals collectively paid over $2.3 million in money and other benefits to Singh and Bush to steer millions of dollars of the New York company's DBA business to them.


According to the complaint, Dharayan, Gupta, Atluri, Kumar and Kopalle paid the kickbacks and bribes through conduit companies established by Bush and Singh for the very purpose of disguising the true nature and origin of the illegal payments.


Dharayan, Gupta, Koppalle and Siriani were arrested at their homes in New Jersey and were presented in Manhattan federal court July 26 before U.S. Magistrate Judge James L. Cott.


Singh, who was previously arrested in April, pled guilty to honest services fraud and other charges, before U.S. District Judge Denise L. Cote July 11.


Bush, who was also arrested previously on July 12, is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 15. Atluri and Kumar are not yet in custody.


Dharayan, Gupta, Atluri, Kumar, Kopalle, and Siriani were each charged with one count of conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, which carries a maximum term of 20 years in prison, one count of conspiracy to violate the Travel Act, which carries a maximum term of five years in prison, one count of honest services fraud, which carries a maximum term of 20 years in prison, and one count of violating the Travel Act, which carries a maximum term of five years in prison. 


Dharayan, Gupta, Atluri, Kumar and Kopalle were also charged with one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, which carries a maximum term of 20 years in prison.
