Detroit clinic owner admits defrauding Medicare

Compliance Monitor, June 27, 2012

Louisa Thompson, 63, of Detroit, pleaded guilty to participating in a $16 million Medicare fraud scheme, according to a June 20 Department of Justice (DOJ) press release.

Beginning in January 2006, Thompson billed Medicare for psychotherapy services through two companies, TGW Medical Inc. and Caldwell Thompson Manor Inc., for services she never provided or that were provided by unlicensed staff.
 
Thompson also received money from the owner of P&C Adult Day Care Inc., a psychotherapy clinic, to allow the clinic to use Thompson’s provider number.  Thompson also admitted signing therapy documents for P&C patients she never saw or treated.
 
Thompson admitted to submitting or causing to be submitted approximately $15.9 million in fraudulent psychotherapy claims.
