Simon Hong, owner of Los Angeles-based JH Physical Therapy Inc., was sentenced to 63 months in prison and to pay roughly $2.4 million in restitution, for his role in a $3.4 million Medicare fraud scheme that involved billing for occupational therapy services that were not medically necessary and not provided.   Hong admitted billing Medicare for occupational therapy services when what were provided instead were acupuncture and massage services, not reimbursable by Medicare.  Hong further admitted directing co-conspirator therapists to falsify medical records to make it appear as if the services billed actually had been provided. DOJ
