On September 11, 2012, Firas Alky was indicted on charges of health care fraud conspiracy and conspiracy to pay and receive health care kickbacks. Investigators believe that Alky and his co-conspirators submitted millions in false claims to Medicare for home health services and other medical services that were either medically unnecessary and/or were not actually provided.
Alky jointly operated and controlled Associates in Home Care, Inc.; ABC Home Care, Inc.; and Swift Home Care, LLC. These Michigan-based companies were part of an even larger home health care fraud network that included over 30 companies that purportedly provided Medicare beneficiaries with home health services.
According to the indictment, Alky and his co-conspirators allegedly paid kickbacks and bribes to recruiters and others for information on Medicare beneficiaries that would be used to bill Medicare for services that were either medically unnecessary and/or not provided.
Alky and his co-conspirators received $31.2 million in reimbursement for these false claims and then transferred and disbursed the funds to themselves and others.
