Bobby Rouse, a former executive with Continuum Healthcare LLC, which owned Houston hospital Westbury Community Hospital as well as area mental health centers, was sentenced to ten years in prison following his guilty plea on charges arising from an unlawful kickback scheme.  At the direction of Rouse and co-conspirators, Continuum paid kickbacks for the referral of patients to partial hospitalization programs at Continuum facilities, many of whom did not qualify for PHP services.  In total, Continuum billed Medicare approximately $189 million for fraudulent PHP services, and Medicaid paid approximately $66 million on those clams. Fourteen individuals have been charged for the fraud.  USAO SD TX
