Sentencing Finally Completed for $189 Million Medicare Fraud Scheme

Earlier this year, the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) wrapped up sentencing in a $189 million Medicare fraud scam dating back roughly a decade. Bobby Rouse, Steven Houseworth, Jeffery Parsons, and David Edson were all members of the executive team of Continuum Healthcare, which owned mental health centers and Westbury Community Hospital in the Houston area. Each location operated a partial hospitalization program that was supposed to be a treatment program for individuals with mental illness, intended to closely resemble a highly structured, short-term hospital inpatient program. However, while it was a distinct and organized intensive treatment program, it offered less than round-the-clock care.
