Two home health agency owners appeared in federal court on charges they fraudulently billed more than $10 million to Medicare. Charges allege they paid patients to sign up for medically unnecessary home health services, provided free transportation, and covered copayments and other fees at doctors’ office visits. They also created phony medical records to make it appear the services met Medicare’s criteria for reimbursement, according to the indictment. Read a Department of Justice press release.
