Four Charged in $20 Million Medicare Conspiracy

June 16, 2021

Two defendants, while working for telemedicine companies, are accused of signing prescriptions for medical braces regardless of medical necessity, without physical examinations, and frequently without any contact with beneficiaries. It is alleged that these telemedicine companies would then transfer the prescriptions to medical marketing companies, including one owned by one of the defendants; the companies would then use them as part of an unlawful package of Medicare beneficiary leads sold to durable medical equipment companies. A defendant and others are accused of bribes and kickbacks in exchange for the leads packages, which they would then use to arrange for ordering the medical braces for beneficiaries.
