Michigan man gets 4 years for health care kickback

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan medical clinic owner has been sentenced to 4 years in prison for a health kickback scheme.

Forty-four-year-old Babubhai Rathod of Okemos also has been ordered to make the remaining $50,000 in a $950,000 restitution payment.

Rathod pleaded guilty in November to conspiracy to pay and receive health care kickbacks. He was the owner of clinics, outpatient rehabilitation facilities and home health care companies statewide.

Eight other people have been convicted for their roles in the case.

Rathod operated Ludington-based Lakeshore Spine & Pain P.C. and U.S. Rehab Services P.C.
