Mohammad Khan, the former assistant administrator of Riverside General Hospital, was sentenced to 40 years in prison and to pay restitution in the amount of $31,321,200 for his role in a $116 million Medicare fraud scheme.  He previously pled guilty to his role in the scheme.  According to admissions made in connection with his guilty plea, from January 2008 through February 2012, Khan and others at Riverside General Hospital operated a scheme to defraud Medicare by submitting claims for partial hospitalization program (PHP) services that were not medically necessary and, in some cases, never provided.  Khan also admitted he and his co-conspirators paid kickbacks to patient recruiters and to owners and operators of group care homes in exchange for which those individuals delivered ineligible Medicare beneficiaries to the hospital’s PHPs.  To date, 10 individuals have pleaded guilty or been convicted for their involvement in the scheme.  DOJ
