Carolyn Ferrara, a former office manager for Sarasota dermatologist Michael Rosin, and Ellen Murray, a former patient, received a $1 million reward from the U.S. Department of Justice for their roles in sending Rosin to prison for Medicare fraud.

In 2004, the women filed a whistle-blower lawsuit alleging that Rosin had performed unnecessary surgery on dozens of patients in order to drive up Medicare payments. The award was a share of the restitution.

Rosin is serving a 22-year prison sentence in Miami.
