The Department of Justice has arrested six people in an alleged health care fraud scheme involving sober homes and alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers. One of the people arrested is connected to several treatment centers and sober homes in South Florida.
The report from the Department of Justice claims Kenneth Chatman, who is listed as an administrator on the website for Reflections Treatment Center in Margate, threatened patients to make them stay in his treatment facilities so that he could continue to "fraudulently bill their insurance companies."
Chatman along with six others including doctors, owners, and staff members of treatment facilities are charged with conspiracy to commit health care fraud. John Lehman, President of the Florida Association of Recovery Residences says he has been receiving complaints about Chatman and his drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers for three years.
