WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Justice Department has charged three people for their roles in an alleged Illinois health care fraud scheme operating out of a home in Schaumburg.
The indictment unsealed Tuesday alleges the three participated in a scheme operating out of a home visiting physician practice, Medicall Physicians Group Ltd.
Prosecutors claim Medicare paid Medicall $4.7 million between January 2007 and December 2011.
