A federal jury in Detroit convicted Michigan patient recruiter Reginald Smith and Michigan physical therapist Rajan Patel for their roles in a $1.6M Medicare fraud scheme. According to the evidence, Smith worked as a patient recruiter for Angle’s Touch Home Health Care LLC where he solicited patients for foot care services at adult foster care homes and then referred them to Angle’s Touch for medically unnecessary home health care services in exchange for kickbacks. The kickbacks were disguised as payments to Smith’s nonprofit Medicare providerPeople Helping People of Detroit. Patel worked as a physical therapist at Angle’s Touch where he fabricated patient medical records to make it appear that the recruited patients qualified for and received the home health care services, when they did not.
