Badar Ahmadani, co-owner of Detroit home health care company Hands on Healing Home Care Inc., was sentenced to 96 months in prison and to pay roughly $38 million in restitution for his role in a Medicare fraud scheme that caused approximately $33 million in losses.  According to evidence presented at trial, Ahmadani and his co-conspirators obtained patients by paying cash kickbacks to recruiters, who in turn paid cash to patients to induce them to sign up for home health care with companies owned by co-defendant Zafar Mehmood: Access Care Home Care Inc., Patient Care Home Care Inc., Hands On Healing Home Care Inc. and All State Home Care Inc.  The evidence also showed that Mehmood and Ahmadani paid kickbacks to physicians to refer patients to the companies for home health care services that were medically unnecessary and/or not provided.  Mehmood was previously sentenced to 360 months in prison and to pay roughly $40.5 million in restitution.  DOJ
