California resident to begin serving wire fraud sentence

CONCORD - Sirous Sorat, 58, a California resident, surrendered Monday to the Federal Bureau of Prisons to begin serving a 37-month sentence for wire fraud.

U.S. Attorney John P. Kacavas said the sentence stems from Sorat's conviction in U.S. District Court in Concord for participating in a scheme to defraud companies that purchased fraudulent health insurance claims that Sorat represented were legitimate.

These claims were generated when Los Angeles area doctors purportedly gave workers compensation patients certain cream compound for joint and muscle pain. The government investigation revealed that, in fact, the doctors had not delivered the creams to the patients, but Sorat nevertheless claimed to have purchased the resulting health insurance claims from the doctors.

Sorat then sold the claims to companies in Massachusetts and Florida, who, through a New Hampshire billing agent, submitted the claims to various insurance companies for potential reimbursement.

In addition to his jail sentence, Sorat was ordered to pay forfeiture and restitution of over $2.3 million.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations and prosecuted by assistant U.S. Attorneys Michael Gunnison and Seth Aframe.
