DALLAS — The owner of a Texas-based medical service provider is among seven people indicted in what authorities say is the largest health care fraud scheme in U.S. history, bilking Medicare and Medicaid of nearly $375 million.

The federal indictment alleges Dr. Jacque Roy, who owns Medistat Group Associates in DeSoto, of leading a scheme that billed Medicare for home health services that were not medically necessary or were not done.

The indictment was made public on Tuesday.

Others charged in the scheme include owners and employees of health care businesses.
