Cruz Sonia Collado, the owner and operator of Nestor’s Health Services, a now-defunct Miami home health care agency, pleaded guilty to a $6.5M million health care fraud scheme. According to the government, Collado and her co-conspirators operated Nestor for the purpose of billing Medicare for expensive physical therapy and home health care services that were not medically necessary or never provided. As part of the scheme, Collado allegedly also paid kickbacks and bribes to patient recruiters, in return for those recruiters providing patients to Nestor for these unnecessary or phantom home health care and therapy services.
