Marie Neba, co-owner of Houston-based home-health agency Fiango Home Healthcare Inc., was convicted for her role in a $13 million Medicare fraud and money laundering scheme.  According to the evidence presented at trial and admissions made in the guilty plea of her husband and co-owner Ebong Tilong, Neba and Tilong paid illegal kickbacks to physicians in exchange for authorizing medically unnecessary home-health services for Medicare beneficiaries.  They also paid illegal kickbacks to patient recruiters for referring Medicare beneficiaries for home-health services and to Medicare beneficiaries for allowing them to bill Medicare using their Medicare information for home-health services that were not medically necessary or not provided.  Neba and Tilong also falsified medical records to make it appear as though the Medicare beneficiaries qualified for and received home-health services.  DOJ
