Detroit-area physician Dr. Rajesh Doshi pleaded guilty for orchestrating — through his medical practice Home Physicians Services— the submission of fraudulent claims for physician home visits as part of a $19M home health care fraud scheme. According to his plea agreement, Dr. Doshi admitted that between October 2005 and September 2012, he conspired with others to commit health care fraud by referring Medicare beneficiaries for home health care that was not medically necessary, and then submitting false and fraudulent claims for the purported care to Medicare for reimbursement. Dr. Doshi also admitted he solicited and received kickbacks from home health agency owners in exchange for the referral of beneficiaries to those agencies, regardless of whether the beneficiaries qualified for or needed home health care.
