 1/11/19 - Ed Henry to plead guilty in case alleging Medicare fraud [Governance, Risk & Compliance Monitor Worldwide]

Former state Rep. Ed Henry, R-Hartselle, filed a notice today in federal court indicating he will change his plea from not guilty to guilty in a case involving alleged Medicare fraud.

The planned change in plea is based on a plea agreement offered by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Ross, according to the notice.

Henry is one of three defendants in the case. The other two Dr. Punuru Reddy of Decatur and Dr. Nicole Scruggs of Huntsville allegedly conspired with Henry in a kickback and bribery scheme.

The federal grand jury`s indictments involve Henry`s business, MyPractice24 Inc., which provided chronic care management for the patients of doctors who contracted with the company. Prosecutors allege Henry provided valuable benefits to the doctors in return for referrals, and that the doctors routinely waived co-payments for the services provided by Henrys company in an effort to get their patients to use the service.

The case is scheduled for a Feb. 4 jury trial.

Henry announced in January 2017 he would not seek a third term.
