Federal authorities are chalking up another conviction in a massive fraud case out of Detroit. The latest action came earlier this month in federal court. Officials confirm that a jury found a Canton businessman guilty of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and conspiracy to pay kickbacks to health care professionals in connection with the case.
According to records in the case, the defendant and his brother were owners of First Michigan Home Health Care Inc. in Livonia. Prosecutors alleged that the 41-year-old man regularly obtained referrals of patients by paying kickbacks to a variety of people in the medical community.
