Contreras, an owner and administrator for Sambritt Home Health LLC, was also ordered to pay more than $1 million in restitution. As part of a plea, he admitted he forged and/or caused others to forge physician signatures, knowing the physicians did not authorize the need for home health services and/or that the beneficiaries did not need or qualify for home health services.
