Mohammad Rafiq, owner of Detroit-area home health care agency Perfect Home Health Care, was sentenced to 57 months in prison and to pay roughly $3.5 million in restitution (and forfeit the same amount) for his role in a $3.4 million health care fraud scheme. According to admissions made as part of his plea agreement, Rafiq paid physicians and recruiters to refer Medicare beneficiaries to Perfect and sign medical documents falsely certifying they required home health care. Rafiq also directed patient recruiters and Perfect employees to pay cash kickbacks to Medicare beneficiaries in exchange for signing multiple blank physical therapy records. DOJ
