Laura Leyva, the former president and owner of rehabilitation therapy services clinic American Rehab of Kissimmee Inc., pleaded guilty to health care fraud and money laundering. Specifically, from June 2007 through November 2009, American Rehab submitted approximately $2.5M in false and fraudulent claims for reimbursement to Medicare seeking payment for rehabilitation therapy services that were not legitimately prescribed and not provided. Co-conspirators falsified and forged medical records used to give the appearance that therapy services were rendered when, in fact, they were not. DOJ
