Damian Mayol, the president of Miami-based transportation company Transportation Services Providers Inc. was sentenced to 60 months in prison and to pay $26.8 million in restitution (and forfeit the same amount) for his role in a health care fraud scheme involving three mental health centers that resulted in the submission of approximately $70 million in false Medicare claims.  According to evidence presented at trial, Mayol and his co-conspirators used his company to coordinate the payment of illegal kickbacks to recruiters, who in return referred patients to three now-defunct community mental health centers — R&S Community Mental Health Inc., St. Theresa Community Mental Health Center Inc. and New Day Community Mental Health Center LLC — for costly partial hospitalization program services that were not medically necessary or not actually provided.  DOJ
