NEW YORK (AP) - Five people have been indicted in a $38 million health care fraud and money laundering scheme in New York City.

An indictment filed Monday in Brooklyn charges the defendants of bilking Medicare and Medicaid by referring customers to medical clinics and taking illegal kickbacks in return. The alleged scheme had been operating in Brooklyn for nearly a decade.

The Daily News (https://nydn.us/28JYV7Y ) reports that ambulette drivers and patients allegedly received cash kickbacks for seeking fraudulent services at medical clinics in Bensonhurst and Sheepshead Bay controlled by the group.
