There being a verdict of GUILTY, defendant has been convicted as charged of the offense(s) of Health Care Fraud, in violation of Title 18 U.S.C. § 1347, as charged in Counts 1, 3 and 4 of the Third Superseding Indictment.
The Court asked whether there was any reason why judgment should not be pronounced. Because no sufficient cause to the contrary was shown, or appeared to the Court, the Court adjudged the defendant guilty as charged and convicted and ordered that: Pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, it is the judgment of the Court that the defendant is hereby committed to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons to be imprisoned for a term of: FORTY-ONE (41) MONTHS
It is ordered that the defendant shall pay to the United States a special assessment of $300,which is due immediately. Any unpaid balance shall be due during the period of imprisonment, at the rate of not less than $25 per quarter, and pursuant to the Bureau of Prisons' Inmate Financial Responsibility Program.
Defendant shall pay restitution in the total amount of $429,962 to victim as set forth in a separate victim list prepared by the Probation Office which this Court adopts and which reflects the Court's determination of the amount of restitution due to each victim. The victim list, which shall be forwarded to the Fiscal Section of the Clerk's Office, shall remain confidential to protect the privacy interests of the victims.
Restitution shall be due during the period of imprisonment, at the rate of not less than $25per quarter, and pursuant to the Bureau of Prisons' Inmate Financial Responsibility Program. If any amount of the restitution remains unpaid after release from custody, nominal monthly payments of at least 10% of defendants's gross monthly income, but not less than $50, whichever is greater, during the period of supervised release and shall begin 30 days after the commencement of supervision. Nominal restitution payments are ordered as the court finds that the defendant's economic circumstances do not allow for either immediate or future payment of the amount ordered.
The defendant shall be held jointly and severally liable with co-participants, Uben Ogbu Rush (Docket No. CR-09-679(C)) for the amount of restitution ordered in this judgment. The victim's recovery is limited to the amount of its loss and the defendant's liability for restitution ceases if and when the victim receives full restitution.
Interest on the restitution ordered is waived because the defendant does not have the ability to pay interest. Payments may be subject to penalties for default and delinquency.
The defendant shall comply with General Order No. 01-05.
All fines are waived as it is found that the defendant does not have the ability to pay a fine in addition to restitution.

This term consists of 41 months on each of Counts 1, 3 and 4 of the Third Superceding Indictment, to be served concurrently.
Upon release from imprisonment, the defendant shall be placed on supervised release for a term of two years. This term consists of two years on each of Counts 1, 3 and 4 of the Third Superceding Indictment, all such terms to run concurrently under the following terms and conditions:
