An owner and operator of community mental health centers in Baton Rouge as well as a patient recruiter for a related facility in Houston were convicted for their roles in a $258M Medicare fraud scheme involving three facilities that filed fraudulent claims for psychiatric services that were unnecessary or never actually provided.
