Huey P. Williams Jr., owner of Houston-area based durable medical equipment companies Hermann Medical Supplies Inc. and Hermann Medical Supplies II was sentenced to 63 months in prison and to pay $1.96 million in restitution for his role in a $3.4 million Medicare fraud scheme.  Specifically, Williams caused Hermann Medical to bill Medicare for components of an “arthritis kit,” which included expensive, rigid braces and orthotics with adjustable joints that required fitting and adjustment, when in reality, Williams purchased and provided to beneficiaries only inexpensive, flimsy neoprene braces and equipment, to the extent he provided any equipment at all.  DOJ
