Paul J. Mathieu and Hatem Behiry were found guilty for their part in a $30 million scheme to defraud Medicare and the New York State Medicaid program. Between 2007 and 2013, Mathieu falsely posed as an owner of three medical clinics (the “Clinics”) in Brooklyn. During that time, the Clinics fraudulently billed Medicare and Medicaid for medical services and supplies that were not necessary, or were not even provided. Furthermore, Mathieu did not see any patients at that time. Instead, he falsified large stacks of bogus medical records in which he stated that he did see and treat those patients. Behiry, a physical therapy doctor, also participated in the Clinic’s fraudulent billing practices by pretending to provide physical therapy services to patients. Mathieu and Behiry have not yet been sentenced. DOJ
