Federal prosecutors say Omaha man bilked Medicare of more than $670K in multi-state scam

An Omaha man is accused of bilking Medicare of more than $674,000 in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and a dozen other states, allegedly throwing pizza parties at nursing homes and going to homeless shelters promising them all freebies in order to get Social Security information to further the scam.

Nereus Sutko has been charged in U.S. District Court with health care fraud starting Nov. 1, 2010, and continuing into this month.

In a 19-page affidavit, Paul Vaccaro, a special agent with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, said Sutko submitted more than 1,666 false claims while managing Better Lives MedGroup LLC.

Vaccaro said the business has moved several times since it opened in November 2010, but most recently had an address on Millard Avenue in Omaha, moving out at the end of February.
