Detroit Medicare Fraud Doctors Arrested

Five doctors and two others in and around metro Detroit face felony charges in connection with $132 million in fraudulent Medicare claims for medically unnecessary treatments, according to a federal indictment.

The allegations, which include accusations of prescribing medically unnecessary opiates to patients, are part of a national takedown, by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in which about 400 people are charged with making some $1.3 billion in fraudulent billings.

FBI agents on Wednesday raided multiple medical offices inside Detroit’s historic Fisher Building in the New Center area. Employees in the area reported that offices tied to companies Tri-County Medical and Nat Lab were among those targeted.

A news release today from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services described a “notable case” involving Mashiyat Rashid of Oakland County — owner or operator of Tri-County Network — and his alleged co-conspirators.

The Detroit network of companies “allegedly engaged in illegal kickbacks and billing for medically unnecessary joint injections, drug screenings and home health services,” according to the news release.

Rashid is charged with health care fraud conspiracy, health care fraud, conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and pay and receive healthcare kickbacks, receipt of kickbacks in connection with a federal healthcare program, payment of kickbacks in connection with a federal healthcare program and money laundering.

The defendants involved in the case each face at least one count of health care fraud conspiracy, one count of health care fraud among other charges.
