Charlz and Angela Bisong are both charged with one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, six counts of health care fraud and one count of conspiracy to pay and receive health care kickbacks.
The indictment alleges the Bisongs co-owned SierCam Healthcare Services LLC. From 2012 through 2020, SierCam allegedly billed Medicare for home health services that were not medically necessary and often not provided as billed to Medicare. The charges allege the Bisongs paid SierCam patients to sign up for medically unnecessary home health services and provided free transportation and covered the copayments and other fees at doctor’s office visits to facilitate their health care fraud scheme. Additionally, the Bisongs created phony medical records to make it appear the services met Medicare’s criteria for reimbursement, according to the indictment.
