Felix Gonzalez, owner of Miami-based home health care company AA Advanced Care Inc. pleaded guilty in connection with a $32 million Medicare fraud scheme. Specifically, Gonzalez admitted he and his co-conspirators operated AA Advanced for the purpose of billing Medicare for, among other things, expensive physical therapy and home health care services not medically necessary or not provided at all. He also admitted he paid kickbacks and bribes to patient recruiters in exchange for patient referrals, prescriptions, plans of care (POCs) and certifications for medically unnecessary therapy and home health services.
