Richard Shannon, a patient recruiter for All American and Patient Choice, two home health care companies that provide skilled nursing and physical therapy services to Medicare beneficiaries in the greater Detroit area, was sentenced to 86 months in prison for his role in a $14.5M Medicare fraud scheme. The evidence showed that Shannon paid Medicare beneficiaries to sign blank documents for physical therapy services that were never provided and/or medically unnecessary. Shannon recruited destitute beneficiaries from housing projects and soup kitchens in the Detroit area, obtaining their patient information in exchange for cash and promises of prescription narcotics prescribed by co-conspirator physicians.
