Detroit-area physician Dr. Hicham A. Elhorr was sentenced to 72 months in prison and to pay roughly $2 million in restitution for directing a multi-million dollar Medicare fraud scheme through his medical practice. According to admissions in his plea agreement, Elhorr employed unlicensed individuals through his visiting physician practice, House Calls Physicians PLLC, who held themselves out as licensed physicians and purported to provide physician home visits and other services to Medicare beneficiaries in Michigan. The unlicensed individuals prepared medical documentation that Elhorr and other licensed physicians signed as if they had performed the visits when, in fact, no licensed physicians had treated the beneficiaries.
