Owner of telemedicine companies indicted in $784 million Medicare fraud


In addition, Harry tried to conceal and disguise the illegal kickback scheme and the Medicare fraud by instructing DME suppliers and marketers to make their payments to shell companies instead of directly paying his telemedicine companies. He then transferred the monies from shell companies to his telemedicine companies to pay physicians for writing unnecessary orders for braces and medications,” according to the DOJ.

Furthermore, the Justice Department alleged that Harry lied to prospective investors, lawyers, and others that his telemedicine companies did not receive any kickback. He falsely claimed that his companies had been receiving $10 million in revenue annually from fees paid by patients receiving telemedicine services. In reality, his companies were generating revenue from illegal bribes and kickbacks.

Moreover, the DOJ alleged that Harry committed income tax evasion between 2018 and 2018 by receiving proceeds from his illegal scheme through shell companies. He allegedly used those proceeds to live a luxurious lifestyle.

The defendant and his co-conspirators were previously indicted

Harry has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and wire fraud, and four counts of income tax evasion.
