Six people from Ohio pleaded guilty in federal court to crimes related to a health care fraud conspiracy in which Medicaid was billed $48 million for drug and alcohol recovery services, many of which were not provided, not medically necessary, lacked proper documentation, or had other issues that made them ineligible for reimbursement.

Ryan P. Sheridan, 39, of Leetonia; Jennifer M. Sheridan, 41, of Austintown; Kortney L. Gherardi, 30, of Girard; Lisa M. Pertee, 51, of Sunbury; Thomas Bailey, 45, of Poland, and Arthur H. Smith, 55, of Austintown, are expected to be sentenced in January 2020. All six pleaded guilty to crimes related to their work at Braking Point Recovery Center, which operated drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in Austintown and Whitehall, Ohio.

According to the court documents:

Ryan Sheridan was the sole owner of Braking Point Recovery Center, which operated drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in Austintown and Whitehall, Ohio, that provided detox, intensive outpatient treatment, day treatment and residential living rehabilitation.

Sheridan also owned and operated numerous other businesses, including Breaking Point Health and Fitness LLC and Braking Point Recovery Housing LLC, which owned recovery houses (or “sober houses”) for individuals attempting to maintain abstinence from drugs and alcohol.
