Dr. Jacques Roy, who ran the business, and six other associates were arrested and charged with recruiting homeless people, among others, as part of a $375 million home health care fraud scheme, authorities announced Tuesday. The federal indictment accused Jacques Roy of leading a scheme that billed Medicare for home health services that were not medically necessary or were not done. Also indicted were Roy's office manager as well as five owners of home health agencies. (AP Photo/The Dallas Morning News, Michael Ainsworth)
