Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, US Attorney Nicola T. Hanna of the Central District of California, Assistant Director in Charge Nancy McNamara of the FBI’s Washington, DC Field Office and Assistant Director in Charge Paul D. Delacourt of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office made the announcement.

Benjamin Rosenberg, DDS, 58, of Los Angeles, CA, pleaded guilty to one count of health care fraud before US District Judge John A. Kronstadt of the Central District of California. Sentencing will take place on May 23 before Judge Kronstadt.

As part of his guilty plea, Rosenberg admitted that he submitted and caused to be submitted approximately $3,853,931 in false and fraudulent claims to various insurance companies for dental care that Rosenberg knew had not been rendered.
