Terrence Hicks and Detroit residents Muhammed Al Mahdi and John Sanders plead guilty in their roles committing a $4.3 million Medicare fraud scheme. All three defendants plead guilty to conspiracy to commit health care fraud, according to the DoJ. The defendants were aware the clinic was making notations in medical charts that were never provided to them, as well as receiving $50 kickbacks for visiting Sacred Hope Center. Sacred Hope Center purported to specialize in providing infusion and injection therapy to Medicare patients. Sacred Hope repeatedly billed Medicare for medically unneccessary treatments and services that were never provided. Fraudblawg has previously reported on the fraud at Sacred Hope: here and here.
