7 accused of $375M Medicare, Medicaid fraud
Texas medical group owner among 7 indicted in alleged $375 million health care fraud scheme
By The Associated Press

DALLAS (AP) ' For years a Texas doctor filed paperwork that would have made his practice the busiest Medicare provider in the U.S.

But federal prosecutors said Tuesday it was all a lie and charged 41-year-old Jacques Roy, who owned Medistat Group Associates in DeSoto, Texas, with several counts of health care fraud and conspiracy.

Roy's attorney says he denies the charges. Six others are also charged, and more than 75 agencies linked to Roy have had their Medicare payments suspended.

Prosecutors allege Roy found people to bill for home health care services that were not delivered or were unneeded. He faces up to 100 years in prison if convicted on the counts.

Officials with the Justice and Health and Human Services departments say the charges show new data analysis techniques are working.
