Home Health Agency Owner Pleads Guilty to Medicare Fraud Scheme

October 28, 2013

Javed Rehman, a Detroit-area resident, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud in the Eastern District of Michigan according to a DOJ press release.  In May 2009, Rehman and his co-conspirators, Tausif Rahman and Muhammed Ahmad, purchased Quantum Home Care, Inc.  Rehman obtained Medicare beneficiary information by paying illegal kickbacks to recruiters and used the information to bill Medicare for physical therapy and skilled nursing services that were never rendered.  From June 2009 until September 2011, Medicare paid Quantum approximately $1.7 million for home health services.  Over the course of the conspiracy, Rahman and Ahmad gained control of three other home health care companies.  Collectively, the four companies received approximately $13.8 million from Medicare.

Rahman pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and one count of money laundering on January 5, 2012.  Ahmad pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud on August 28, 2012.  Both are scheduled for sentencing later this month.  Rehman is scheduled for sentencing on November 7, 2013.
