Mohammed Elsaleh, owner and operator of former Houston-area ambulance company National Care EMS agreed to settle allegations that he and the company provided kickbacks to various nursing facilities and hospitals in exchange for rights to the institutions’ more lucrative Medicare and Medicaid transport referrals. The settlement calls for Elsaleh to pay $125,000 to resolve the “swapping” allegations made against him and the company. Elsaleh’s brother, Husam Alsaleh, the owner and operator of a successor company also called National Care EMS agreed to pay $120,000 in furtherance of the settlement. DOJ (SDTX)
