HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — Another Mississippi pharmacist is pleading guilty to helping run a fraud that collected millions from insurers.
Marco Moran of Raymond pleaded guilty in Hattiesburg federal court on Thursday to one count of attempt and conspiracy to commit health care fraud.
In the plea, Moran admits to participating in fraud that collected $22 million between May 2014 and January 2016. Some came from a federal military health insurer.
The 45-year-old Moran co-owned Medworx, a Ridgeland pharmacy. He also owned a second pharmacy.
Prosecutors say Moran is part of a far-reaching scheme that took in more than $400 million. So far, nine people have been convicted in Mississippi.
Moran faces up to 10 years in prison. Prosecutors want him to forfeit $12 million in assets. Sentencing is set for Nov. 27.
