Alexandria Man Sentenced to Prison for Health Care Fraud Scheme

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Delvin Macarthy, aka “Brian Macarthy,” 37, of Alexandria, was sentenced today to 46 months in prison for conspiracy to commit health care fraud. Macarthy was also sentenced to three years of supervised release and ordered to pay $734,458 in restitution.

Macarthy pleaded guilty on July 6. According to court documents, Macarthy established Individual Care Home Health Services, Inc. (Individual Care), which he owned together with his wife, Beatrice Macarthy.  Individual Care purported to provide home health care services to individuals in the Alexandria area. In or around January 2006, Individual Care was terminated from its contract to provide home health care services to C.J., a totally disabled individual. Individual Care has not provided any care to C.J. since its termination. Nevertheless, from approximately March 2009 through March 2014, Delvin and Beatrice Macarthy, d/b/a Individual Care, submitted invoices to health care providers for $847,632 in home health care services, purportedly for patient C.J., that were never actually provided by Individual Care.  Delvin Macarthy was the leader and organizer of the fraud scheme.  His wife Beatrice has separately pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit health care fraud and will be sentenced in a related case on September 23.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; and Paul M. Abbate, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Grace L. Hill prosecuted the case.
