Owners of Fraudulent Physical Therapy Company Sentenced

Angel Gonzalez and Jorge Zamora, co-owners and operators of Dynamic Therapy Inc. were sentenced last week to 42 months in prison and 46 months in prison, respectively, for “kickbacks and bribes to Medicare beneficiaries in order to obtain their Medicare billing information and used it to submit claims to Medicare for physical therapy services that were never provided,” says DoJ. Together with other convicted Medicare fraudsters, Gonzalez and Zamora additionally will have to re-pay over $82,000. Physical therapy fraud is becoming more and more prevalent as yet another way that the overly-strapped Medicare system is abused. An estimated $80-100 billion of federal taxpayer dollars are lost annually to fraud and abuse.
