DETROIT (AP) — Federal prosecutors say the owner of a Detroit-area home health care agency owner has been sentenced to 5 years in Detroit for his role in a $13.8 million medical fraud conspiracy.

The U.S. Justice Department says that Rehan Kahn was sentenced Monday in Detroit.

The department says Khan was an owner of Moonlite Home Care Inc. and worked as a physical therapy assistant for several home health agencies in the Detroit area. Prosecutors say Khan paid doctors to refer patients for home health care services that were either unnecessary or weren't provided.

They say he was responsible for making $1.77 million in false billings to Medicare.
