Three patient recruiters were sentenced to prison for their participation in a $20 million health care fraud scheme involving defunct home health care company Trust Care Health Services. Estrella Perez was sentenced to 37 months and ordered to pay $1.2 million; Solchys Perez was sentenced to 30 months and ordered to pay $746,000; and Abigail Aguila was sentenced to 30 months and ordered to pay $491,000. According to court documents, Estrella Perez, Solchys Perez, and Aguila recruited patients for Trust Care, a Miami home health care agency, in exchange for kickbacks paid in cash or by check to the defendants or their shell companies. In turn, Trust Care billed the Medicare program for home health care and therapy services that were not medically necessary or were not provided. DOJ
