Man sentenced for defrauding Southern Illinois Healthcare of almost $600,000

A former employee of Southern Illinois Healthcare was sentenced Tuesday in Benton to 18 months in prison for defrauding a healthcare company of $593,000.

Cary Mosley pleaded guilty to the fraud charges earlier this year, according to previous federal court news release

That release stated Mosley was employed by both SIH and QED Medical Physics, a company that provides support services to SIH’s radiation oncology department, at the same time from December 2006 to July 2013. Mosley was manager of the radiation oncology department.

In a WSIL 3 report, prosecutors said Mosley basically double-billed SIH for $593,000 worth of work he never did.

Mosley apologized to the judge before his sentencing, the WSIL report said.

“I made a choice 12 and a half years ago to betray that trust and I hurt people who were like family to me,” he told the court, according to WSIL.

Mosley will also have to pay SIH $1.2 million, serve a year of home confinement and go through three years of probation, WSIL reported.
