Lopez is a licensed physical therapist and owner of Total Rehab in Brooklyn, NY.
Lopez confessed to OI Agents that he was knowingly involved and an active participant in a scheme to defraud Medicare and Medicaid whereby Total Rehab submitted claims to these programs for services that were either not rendered, not medically necessary, not appropriately supervised and/or performed by unlicensed individuals. He also stated that on several occasions he was outside the United States on vacation and when he returned, he signed back dated superbills for the dates of services when he gone, despite knowing this was wrong.
According to the indictment, between approximately March 2009 and November 2011, providers at Total Rehab submitted and caused to be submitted approximately $9.8 million in claims to Medicare and approximately $8.6 million in claims to Medicaid. During approximately that same period, Lope was identified as the rendering provider on claims submitted to Medicare totaling approximately $1.8 million and on claims submitted to Medicaid totaling approximately $1 million.
