Press Release from eHealth Technologies

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- eHealth Technologies' Chief General Counsel and Chief Privacy Officer, Michael A. Sciortino, Esq., has issued the following statement:

"The United States Attorney for the Western District of New York, James P. Kennedy, Jr., announced yesterday, February 15, 2019, that a federal grand jury has returned a 15-count indictment charging Michael Margiotta with wire fraud, money laundering, and filing a false tax return. Mr. Margiotta, a former CEO of eHealth Technologies, is the current Chairman and CEO of Chartfill, Inc., iPatientAxis, Inc. and PatientIP. Since 2016, eHealth Technologies has fully cooperated with federal authorities with respect to their investigation of Mr. Margiotta who was indicted by a federal grand jury.

Mr. Margiotta's employment ceased with eHealth Technologies in 2014 and he has not been involved in its operations since that time. The investigation focused on Mr. Margiotta's actions, and not on eHealth Technologies nor any of our current employees, directors, officers, or business partners.

This news has no effect on eHealth Technologies, and our ability to provide the highest-quality service and adhere to the principles, ethics and values that the healthcare community nationwide has come to expect."

Additional questions relating to the matter should be addressed to the United States Attorney for the Western District of New York, James P. Kennedy, Jr., or Assistant United States Attorney John J. Field, who is handling the case.
