The owner of EZ Step and an employee were both charged with conspiracy to commit health care fraud.  They were also charged on multiple counts of health care fraud.  The charges come from allegations that the two people sought reimbursement by forging physician signatures, fabricating prescriptions and equipment orders, forging patient signatures on delivery forms to misrepresent prescription medication and durable equipment deliveries, and altering valid prescriptions between 2005 and 2007.  Arrests were first made in July of 2011.
