DAVIE, Fla. – Bradley Jason Kantor, who owned and operated Mobile Diagnostic Imaging, Inc. in Davie, was indicted Thursday on a charge of orchestrating a $42 million healthcare fraud conspiracy.

According to federal prosecutors, Kantor’s company provided antigen therapy and other allergen immunotherapy services, such as allergy testing and allergy shots.

The indictment accuses Kantor, 49, of Key Largo, of paying kickbacks to co-conspirators “to induce them to refer beneficiaries to MDI, so that MDI could bill commercial insurers for services that it never provided.”

According to the indictment, MDI submitted about $42 million in false and fraudulent claims to United Healthcare, and United ultimately paid the company more than $12 million in reimbursement payments for services that beneficiaries never received.

Prosecutors claim Kantor purchased a $3 million home in the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, two Winnebago motor coaches and a 37-foot yacht with the illegally-obtained proceeds.

Kantor is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and four counts of health care fraud.

If convicted, he faces up to 50 years in prison.
