All American Home Care, Inc. Physical Therapist Pleads Guilty to Medicare Fraud Scheme

January 26, 2010

Detroit resident Jessica Vigil plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud.  Vigil, a physical therapist,  admitted  she created fictitious therapy files appearing to document physical and occupational therapy services provided to Medicare beneficiaries that were never provided.  According to the DoJ, Vigil admitted to signing documents, including start of care packages, recertification forms and discharge papers that facilitated All American’s ability to bill Medicare for home health visits.  Vigil was paid by the owners for each form signed totaling more than $127,00 for signed forms. Home health claims of more than $2.375 million were paid by Medicare to All American for patients never seen or for unneccessary medical treatments.
