Fort Lauderdale based home health care company A Plus Home Health Care, and its owners Tracy and Stephen Nemerofsky, agreed to pay $1.65 million to settle charges A Plus violated the False Claims Act by paying spouses of referring physicians for sham marketing positions to induce patient referrals. According to the government, the company allegedly hired at least seven spouses and one boyfriend of physicians to perform marketing duties but required them to do little if any real work. Their salaries instead were allegedly for the purpose of inducing and rewarding the physicians’ referrals of Medicare patients to A Plus. Whistleblower Insider
