The former CFO and COO of Houston-area Atrium Medical Center and Pristine Healthcare, Starsky Bomer, has been convicted for his role in a $16 million Medicare kickback scheme.  Bomer and others paid illegal kickbacks to group home owners and patient recruiters in exchange for the referral of Medicare patients for outpatient mental health treatment through the hospitals’ partial hospitalization program (PHP).  While the hospitals billed Medicare $16 million for these patients, the evidence at trial demonstrated that Bomer knew that PHP services were not necessary for most of the patients, and that the patients were not, in fact, provided with such services.   DOJ
