Medicare Fraud — Physical Therapy Clinic Employees

The Department of Justice announced yesterday another Medicare fraud scheme.  This announcement dealt with employees of the Solstice Wellness Center in the Brooklyn-area.  

The employees pleaded guilty to paying kickbacks to Medicare beneficiaries to induce them to visit Solstice where they were to receive physicians’ services, physical therapy, and diagnostic tests that were neither actually performed nor medically necessary.   Solstice billed Medicare over $3.4 million.
