A Wesley Chapel doctor and his office manager are accused of defrauding the Florida Medicaid program out of more than $100,000.
Dr. Daniel Jiannetto and Michelle McKleroy, who is also his ex-wife, were arrested Wednesday. Investigators said the pair billed the Florida Medicaid program for services that were never performed.
Jiannetto is an ear, nose and throat specialist, while McKleroy's arrest report lists her as a registered nurse at Moffitt Cancer Center.
Jiannetto and McKleroy are facing one count each of Medicaid provider fraud, one count of first-degree scheming to defraud and one count of second-degree criminal use of personal identification information.
If they are convicted, they could face up to 30 years in prison. They could also be ordered to pay more than $100,000 in restitution.
The case will be prosecuted by Attorney General Pam Bondi's Office of Statewide Prosecution.
