Albert Davydov, one of several defendants charged in April 2019 in a sprawling federal indictment involving fraudulently billing Medicare for orthotic braces, pleaded guilty today to conspiring to violate the Anti-Kickback Statute. The U.S. Attorney’s Office issued a press release announcing the plea.

The case, U.S. v. Williamsky, et al., 2:19-cr-00247, was brought in the District of New Jersey and charged four defendants with multiple charges related to the fraudulent Medicare-billing scheme. Like many such cases, the telemedicine aspect arose from doctors signing orders for medically unnecessary or kickback-tainted braces and other durable medical equipment (DME) via telemedicine consultations. The other defendants, Neil Williamsky, Nadia Levit, and David Rae had previously pleaded guilty. Rae received a time-served sentence, while the other defendants await sentencing. Further details about the charges and case are available in the Case Tracker.
