Prosecutors say the men and one of their employees are accused in connection with a decade-long scheme to obtain health care service payments from private insurers for services that were never provided.

The three were each charged with 16 counts of mail fraud. Sher was also charged with obstruction of justice and Filatov with making false statements.

Also charged were three "purported patients," who were charged with mail fraud and perjury.
