Local Home Health Care Company Owner Sentenced For Fraud
The owner of a Columbus home health care company will serve 3 1/2 years in prison and pay 900 thousand dollars in restitution following his sentencing yesterday on fraud charges.
Federal prosecutors say 45-year-old Eric Isakov, owner of Janis Home Health Care, paid people to sign up with his firm and then billed Medicare in order to obtain money and property from the program. Employees of physician groups and coordinators of senior living facilities were also paid 30 thousand dollars for referrals to the company. Isakov has forfeited all of his licenses.
