The CEO of Tri-County Wellness Group, Mashiyat Rashid, has plead guilty and agreed to forfeit millions of dollars worth of ill-gotten funds and property in connection with a $150 million healthcare fraud. Over the course of almost 10 years, Rashid and physicians working in his pain clinics allegedly prescribed millions of units of medically unnecessary painkillers to Medicare beneficiaries, whom they also subjected to medically unnecessary but expensive injections.
