Health Care Racket Dismantled in SE Michigan, Owner to Pay Back $4.5 Million

Tariq Hafeez, Esq.

Another health care racket was shut down in metro Detroit last month, as Amer Ehsan was sentenced to 80 months in prison. As the owner of Advance Home Health Care Services Inc., Ehsan was able to defraud patients and the government for over $7 million dollars.

The actions committed by him and his co-conspirators that included physicians, physical therapists and patient recruiters took advantage of the new Medicare program that offers assistance to disabled patients who need health services around the clock. He paid physicians to refer beneficiaries to his company and also to produce false documentation stating that patients needed home health care.  He also scammed the government by creating fake patients for his physical therapy company, Michigan Rehab and Management Services LLC.  He used the same scheme with physical therapists as he did with physicians for home health care referrals. Some patients were in on the scam as well, receiving cash kickbacks if they agreed to sign fake physical therapy records.

In total, Medicare paid a total of more than $4.5 million and U.S. District Judge Paul D. Borman intends to get every penny back. In addition to the federal prison sentence, Ehsan was also ordered to pay over $4.5 million in restitution.

I have increasingly represented health care providers and physicians who are in this very situation, and am willing to help anyone who is in need of legal counsel for health care related business matters.
