Detroit-area physician Aaron Goldfein pleaded guilty for his role in a $5.4 million Medicare fraud scheme involving phony physician visits and drug prescriptions.  As part of his plea, Goldfein admitted to being part of a scheme in which his co-conspirators would hold themselves out as licensed physicians and purport to perform physician home visits and other services for Medicare beneficiaries, although these co-conspirators were not licensed to practice medicine in Michigan.  Goldfein would then bill Medicare through Tri-City Medical Center as if he himself had completed these visits.  Goldfein also admitted to being part of a scheme in which he received kickbacks in exchange for writing home health prescriptions. DOJ
