Yalily Clavero Ruiz is the latest to be arrested by the Florida Division of Insurance Fraud (DIF) in connection with deceptive activities at D & J Rehabilitation Center, a Miami clinic that was incorporated in 2009. According to DIF, the 34-year old manager is charged with insurance fraud, grand theft and organized scheme to defraud.
Clavero Ruiz allegedly instructed patients, many of whom were staged accident participants, to sign for treatment that was not provided to them. In one instance, video surveillance conducted on behalf of State Farm showed that Clavero Ruiz paid $1,000 to a patient, who did not receive any treatment, to sign off as if treatment was provided.
DIF has made numerous arrests this year tied to staged accidents and participants who were referred to D & J Rehabilitation.
In October, our FL PIP Guide reported on two recently arrested in the scheme—Victor Manuel Hernandez and Vladimir Caro—whose involvement caused hundreds-of-thousands in fraudulent billings to be submitted to insurance companies.
