An owner and operator of community mental health centers in Baton Rouge as well as a patient recruiter for a related facility in Houston were convicted for their roles in a $258M Medicare fraud scheme involving three facilities that filed fraudulent claims for psychiatric services that were unnecessary or never actually provided. The ongoing investigation into these three community mental health centers — Shifa Community Mental Health Center, Serenity Center and Shifa Community Mental Health Center — has so far resulted in the convictions of 17 employees of these facilities, including therapists, marketers, administrators, owners and the medical director.
