36 defendants in 13 U.S. federal districts were charged for their alleged participation in various health care fraud schemes that exploited the growing acceptance and use of telehealth. Defendants include telemedicine executives who allegedly paid doctors and other medical providers to order unnecessary laboratory testing, durable medical equipment (DME), and other medical services.
