Nagaindra Srivastav has been sentenced to nine years in federal prison on conspiracy and kickback charges for his role in selling fraudulent doctors’ orders to his co-conspirators, who used the orders to obtain more than $48 million in fraudulent payments from Medicare. Srivastav owned B2B Apps Solutions. Through B2B, Srivastav and his co-conspirators created and operated an internet-based platform that individuals and businesses in the health care industry used for the purchase and sale of physician orders for durable medical equipment (DME), such as ankle, back, knee, and leg braces. Srivastav created a website, RepsHub, in which DME companies and others uploaded potential DME patient information. Read a Department of Justice press release.
