Zafar Mehmood, owner of several Detroit home health care companies was sentenced to 360 months in prison and to pay roughly $40.5 million for his role in a Medicare fraud scheme that caused approximately $33 million in losses.  According to evidence presented at trial, Mehmood participated in a scheme in which he 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 Mehmood’s companies: 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 he paid kickbacks to physicians to refer patients to the companies for unnecessary home health care services.  DOJ
