Louisiana doctor Winston Murray pleaded guilty to federal health care fraud charges, admitting (i) he wrote home health care referrals for Medicare beneficiaries he knew were not confined to their homes, and (ii) his referrals were used by home health companies Interlink Health Care Services Inc. and Lakeland Health Care Services Inc., among others, to fraudulently bill Medicare for home health services not medically needed or not provided.  From 2007 through 2014, these companies and other companies involved in this scheme submitted more than $56 million in claims to Medicare, a vast majority of which were fraudulent.  DOJ
