Massage therapist accused of insurance fraud

— A licensed massage therapist, a physician's assistant and 14 patients at a massage clinic in Miami have been arrested in an undercover insurance fraud investigation.

Judith Gonzalez is accused of billing insurance companies nearly $250,000 in fraudulent claims and coaching patients on how to commit personal injury protection fraud.

The 39-year-old Miami woman is the owner of Flamingo Health Corporation and has operated several other clinics.

The state Division of Insurance Fraud and the Miami-Dade Public Department's Public Corruption Investigation Bureau conducted an undercover probe that revealed the scheme.

Anyone with further information about this or other cases is asked to call 800-378-0445.
