Ryan Sheridan owned the Horn Nursing Home building and sought to turn the facility into a for-profit drug treatment center. He was one of six people who pleaded guilty to a $48 million Medicaid fraud scheme. Sheridan was the owner of Braking Point Recovery Center. Prosecutors said Braking Point between January 2015 and October 2017 falsely billed Medicaid nearly 135,000 times. They say those claims included inflated costs for services, billing for patients who hadn’t been medically diagnosed and case management services for patients working out at Sheridan’s gym.
Authorities want Sheridan to forfeit $3 million, as well as properties he owns in several Ohio counties and replica movie vehicles.
After purchasing the former Horn facility, Sheridan unsuccessfully sought a tax-abatement incentive to develop the detox center.
Sheridan eventually defaulted on his mortgage payments to Huntington Bank, leading to a court-ordered auction.
