As previously reported by Patch, Dailey pleaded guilty to three counts of making false statements to the Medicare program about services he never provided to three patients.

The following information was contained in the statement released by the U.S. Attorney's Office Monday.

Dr. John M. Dailey was sentenced to 8 months in prison for making false statements to the Medicare program about face-to-face office visits that he did not actually provide to three patients.  The Court also imposed a $60,000 restitution obligation to the Medicare program.  Dr. Dailey practiced podiatry at an office in Washington, MO.

According to court documents, during 2008-09, Dr. Dailey requested reimbursement from the Medicare program, falsely claiming that he had examined and treated three patients in his office.  Actually, he was on vacation and outside of the State of Missouri on the dates of these office visits, taking trips to Las Vegas, Nevada and Honolulu, Hawaii.  In his plea agreement, Dr. Dailey admitted that he held and abused a position of trust as a Medicare provider and licensed podiatrist when committing these crimes.
