Luis Marin was sentenced to over five years in prison and $219,000 in restitution on April 24, 2015. Marin was captured in Florida on November 19, 2014 by Miami-Dade Police.
Marin was indicted in August 2014 on charges of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and wire fraud, health care fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and money laundering. Investigators believe that Marin and his co-conspirators falsely billed Medicare millions of dollars for physical therapy and other home health services that were never provided or were medically unnecessary.
Marin was president of DD Quality Services Corp. in Sunny Isles, Florida, a company that purportedly provided physical therapy to Medicare beneficiaries. According to court records, Marin was involved in a scheme in which patient recruiters were paid kickbacks in exchange for referring Medicare beneficiaries to two purported home health companies in Florida, Sacred Health, Inc., and Marcialed Healthcare Corp. Marin and his co-conspirators falsified records to document the purported receipt of home health services from home health companies that, in reality, were not provided and were not medically necessary. The false documents were then used to bill Medicare more than $16 million.
