A former Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare food service employee was indicted on 31 counts of filing false tax returns, wire fraud, false claims, and aggravated identity theft.  He and two others are believed to have participated in a conspiracy that led to $818,000 in fraudulent claims.  The employee worked for Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare for three years.  He gathered patient names and dates of birth from food tray receipts when he delivered food to the rooms of patients in August of 2011 and stole emergency room data sheets from the trash. The information was then passed to the two others who participated in the conspiracy.
