Ramon Regueira, owner of Miami home health care company Nation’s Best Care Home Health Corp., pleaded guilty for his role in a $30M home health Medicare fraud scheme. Regueira admitted that he and his co-conspirators operated Nation’s Best for the purpose of billing the Medicare program for expensive physical therapy and home health care services not medically necessary or provided. Specifically, Regueira admitted he and his co-conspirators paid kickbacks and bribes to patient recruiters who provided patients to Nation’s Best, as well as prescriptions, plans of care (POCs) and certifications for medically unnecessary therapy and home health services. From January 2007 through November 2012, Nation’s Best submitted approximately $35M in false claims and Medicare paid approximately $21M for these fraudulent claims. DOJ
