Detroit Clinic Owner and Manager Plead Guilty to Medicare Fraud Charges
Date:9/24/2009

c based not on medical need, but on which medications were likely to generate Medicare reimbursements.

Denisse Martinez admitted in her plea that, despite having no medical training, she completed the clinic's patient records by filling in, among other things, the "diagnosis" and "treatment" sections of the patient charts, which were then provided to the physician for his signature.

According to information contained in the plea documents, Medicare beneficiaries were not referred to RDM Center by their primary care physicians, or for any other legitimate medical purpose, but rather were recruited to come to the clinic through the payment of kickbacks. In exchange for their kickbacks, the Medicare beneficiaries would visit the clinic and sign false documents indicating that they had received the services billed to Medicare. Kickbacks came in the form of cash and prescriptions for controlled substances.

Jose Martinez stated in his plea that he provided cash to a patient recruiter for the purpose of paying Medicare beneficiaries to sign paperwork indicating that they had received infusion and injection therapy services which they did not in fact receive. Denisse Martinez stated in her plea that she understood the patients at the clinic were induced to visit RDM Center through the payment of kickbacks. Both defendants further admitted to being aware that certain Medicare beneficiaries demanded that they be provided prescription drugs, including Vicodin, in exchange for their participation in the fraudulent scheme and that such drugs were in fact provided.

Both defendants admitted in their pleas that between approximately November 2006 and March 2007, they and their co-conspirators filed $970,631 in false and fraudulent claims with the Medicare program. According to court documents, Medicare actually paid more than $649,000 of those false claims.
