Four Californians Plead Guilty to Conspiracy to Commit Health Care Fraud

(snip)
GEOFFREY RICKETTS, MARLA RICKETTS, SAMUEL KIM, and SUNYUP KIM were indicted on June 11, 2015, for their direction of a $38 million fraud scheme centering around the distribution of "talking glucose meters" that were not medically needed and were often not even requested. The defendants operated Care Concepts, LLC, which was based in Metairie and Choice Home Medical Equipment and Supplies (Choice), which was based in Chatsworth, California. According to court documents, the defendants paid kickbacks to workers at call centers in California and South Carolina, from which operators would cold-call Medicare recipients to convince them to accept talking glucose meters and related supplies. From 2007 through 2015, the defendants caused thousands of claims to be submitted to Medicare through Care Concepts and Choice, virtually all of which were fraudulent.
