The court documents allege Montgomery would pay kickbacks to Davis so he would refer patients from CPS who needed medical devices to CCC Medical, The Tennessean reported.
Montgomery allegedly used the referred patients to bill Medicare for at least $4.6 million according to court documents, for which she received about $2.6 million in reimbursements. Documents allege that Montgomery paid Davis at least $770,000 in bribes and disguised some of the payments through another company, The Tennessean reported.
Prosecutors are focusing on the CPS email server, arguing it contains millions of documents. This server appears to be where authorities first discovered the email about forging the signature of the dead patient, the Tennessean reported.
Davis’ attorneys have asked for a copy of the entire server, which they argue will provide context to the emails between Davis and Montgomery, the newspaper reported.
"(Davis) is saying he is making his request in good faith, and is not engaging in a fishing expedition,” federal prosecutors wrote. “However, (he) appears to be standing on the pier with tackle ready.”
