The four persons criminally charged in 2017 for participating in a scheme to obtain confidential proprietary information related to Medicare reimbursement rates from a federal agency and to trade on it for profit from at least 2012 through 2014 were sentenced from one year and one day to three years in prison, following their convictions in May 2018. The scheme involved David Blaszczak, a health insurance consultant; Christopher Worrall, a senior staff manager in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, part of the US Department of Health and Human Services; and Theodore Huber and Robert Olan, partners and analysts at Deerfield Capital Management. (Click here for background on the initial criminal and SEC complaints against the individuals in the article “Alleged Conduit to Hedge Fund for Confidential Nonpublic Government Information Criminally Charged for Insider Trading Along With Three Fund Partners and Government Employee” in the June 4, 2017 edition of Bridging the Week.)
