According to a recent DOJ press release, Marietha Morales and Eduardo Saborit-Dominguez; the owner and employee of a Miami healthcare agency, have pleaded guilty to charges involving a $22 million home health Medicare fraud scheme.
It is alleged that the president of the health care agency conspired with people who were not patients to act as patients so that they can bill them from Medicare. The citizens pretended to be patients and unnecessary therapy and health care services were done for them. The people who were recruited to be patients were in turn bribed and paid kickbacks in order to continue with the scheme. The distribution and coordination of the bribes to the recruited patients was done by the employee; Saborit-Dominguez while the source of the money was from Marietha Morales. The president; Marietha Morales would use the fake prescriptions and medical certifications that were offered to the recruited patients to illegally bill the Medicare program. All this they did knowing very well that it was illegal and a violation of the law.
