The alleged: Prem Reddy, founder of Prime Healthcare Services and Lex Reddy, former CEO
The place: Ontario, California
The charges: Both executives were caught in the crosshairs in 2011, when Prime was investigated by the FBI for overbilling Medicare.
In the latest update to the ongoing case, the Department of Justice joined the whistleblower suit in May, after its investigation found evidence that Prem Reddy pressured emergency physicians to admit patients who did not need inpatient care.
The case is ongoing.
