DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Dr. Jacques Roy will appear in federal court on Monday, asking to be released from jail on bond. Roy is said to be the ringleader of the nation’s largest Medicare fraud ever. The FBI said that the scam cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.

Roy is currently in custody, but he and his attorney will be at a federal courtroom in Dallas to ask that his bail be set, so that he can be released during the time leading up to his trial. This detention hearing is set for 2:00 p.m. Monday afternoon.

Roy’s office in DeSoto and his lakefront home in Rockwall were both raided last month.

Prosecutors stated that Roy ran a boiler room out of his office, and he hired recruiters to bring in new patients. Investigators said that Roy and his six alleged co-conspirators ran a “well-oiled fraudulent enterprise … making millions by recruiting thousands of patients for unnecessary services, and billing Medicare for those services.”

The FBI has seized Roy’s assets. They want to recover the nearly $19 million that Roy has allegedly made in profits.
