Boston, MA… Four men from Newton, Shrewsbury, Marblehead and Gloucester were charged today in federal court with fraud and money laundering in connection with false billings to insurance companies for medical tests. IGOR MOYSEYEV, age 45, of Newton, SEVERIN YELAUN, age 30, of Shrewsbury, DR. DAVID TAMAREN, age 60, of Marblehead, and JOHN MONTONI, age 51, of Gloucester, were charged in an Indictment with Mail Fraud, Wire Fraud, Health Care Fraud, Money Laundering and Conspiracy. According to the Indictment, MOYSEYEV and YELAUN were the principals of Global Tech Diagnostics based in Chelsea, Massachusetts, and YELAUN was the principal of Lynn Diagnostics Management based in Lynn, Massachusetts. The Indictment alleges that between 1999 and 2002, Global Tech and Lynn Diagnostics billed insurance companies for diagnostic examinations that were not conducted. The billings submitted also contained other fraudulent misrepresentations. It is alleged that the Global Tech billings exceeded $100,000 and the Lynn Diagnostics billings exceeded $50,000. As part of the scheme, it is alleged that TAMAREN, who is a medical doctor, and MONTONI, who is a chiropractor, wrote prescriptions for tests that were not medically necessary. Further, MONTONI signed reports of these purported exams, without being trained to administer or analyze the results of said examinations and knowing that the tests were not done.
