Investigation Details

Between September 2006 and July 2010, in the Eastern District of New York and elsewhere, Oleg Kheyson and others participated in a scheme to defraud Medicare, a U.S. Government-sponsored health care program. It is alleged that during the time of the conspiracy and scheme to defraud Medicare, Best Equipment submitted fraudulent claims in the amount of approximately $1.28 million.

Kheyson was a co-owner of Best Equipment, a medical provider certified (or otherwise authorized) to provide medical supplies to Medicare patients at a location on West 1st Street in Brooklyn. In 2008, Kheyson and others requested to add a second Best Equipment site on Brighton 13th Street; Medicare rejected this application, and thus Kheyson was never authorized to treat patients from the Brighton 13th Street site. However, despite this rejection, our evidence shows that from 2006 through July 2010, Kheyson and others billed Medicare for thousands of services from the unauthorized Brighton 13th Street site by submitting the claims through his certified location on West 1st Street.

Kheyson and others also defrauded Medicare by submitting fraudulent claims for orthopedic insoles. In order for Best Equipment to receive reimbursement for orthopedic insoles, the Medicare patient had to have a shoe that was an integral part of a leg brace that was covered by Medicare.

However, upon review of billing data for whom Best Equipment claimed it provided orthopedic insoles, none of the patients received orthopedic shoes or leg braces from Best Equipment or any other Medicare provider; therefore, all of the claims for orthopedic insoles were considered fraudulent.
