Meet Man Allegedly Responsible for Record Setting $375 Million Home Health Care Fraud
The Dallas Morning News continues to uncover more details from the alleged $375 million home health care fraud case.
Now, after some impressive hunting, the Dallas Morning News uncovered photos of the alleged ringleader and other defendants.
Jacques Roy, a Dallas doctor, his office manager and the owners of five home health agencies were arrested and charged in February for their roles in a $375 million health care fraud scheme—the largest fraud amount in the history of Medicare Fraud Strike Force operations.
Dr. Roy was the owner and operator of Dallas-based Medistat Group Associates P.A., an association of health care providers offering home health services, through which he allegedly certified or directed the certification of more than 11,000 individual patients from more than 500 home health agencies for home health services during the past five years.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Jacques faces up to life in prison if convicted.
Dr. Jacques Roy is “a danger to the community,” federal prosecutors said Tuesday in seeking to keep him jailed without bail. They were referring to the millions he’s accused of stealing from taxpayers in a five-year Medicare fraud scheme.
