(DETROIT, MI) – A Michigan man pleaded guilty to fraud charges for his role in a scheme to defraud Medicare out of approximately $6.3 million while he acted as an unlicensed physician at a Detroit in-home physician services company.
Renald Dasine, 54, of Ypsilanti, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud before US District Judge John Corbett O’Meara, of the Eastern District of Michigan. Sentencing has been scheduled for March 8, 2017.
As part of his guilty plea, Dasine admitted that in connection with his employment at B&M Visiting Doctors PLC, he submitted fraudulent claims to Medicare as part of a fraud scheme that took place from 2005 to 2013.
Dasine saw patients and falsified related patient records, including medical documents, prescriptions for controlled substances, and billing documents, all under the name of a licensed medical doctor.
Cecil Alexander Kent, Charles McRae, and Alvin Williams, all unlicensed physicians, previously pleaded guilty for their involvement in the B&M Visiting Doctors PLC scheme.
