If you have been charged with medicare fraud, contact our office to discuss you options and rights. What is now considered the largest single instance of medicare fraud took place in Decatur, just outside of Atlanta. The U.S. Attorney is seeking charges related to doctors and related medical practitioners worth $2M dollars.

Of those charged, more than 150 defendants, including doctors, were charged for their roles in prescribing and distributing opioids and other dangerous narcotics.

The defendants are accused of participating in health care fraud schemes involving about $2 billion in false billings.

The Decatur company implicated in the scheme was Casa Luisa Inc., owned and operated by Rosa Fitzhugh.

Prosecutors said from January 2015 until October 2017, Fitzhugh billed or directed others to fraudulently bill over $2.4 million to Medicaid CMOs by billing for individual and family psychotherapy services that were not provided, billed or entitled to reimbursement.
