WORTHINGTON, Ohio - An Ohio man has admitted to bilking Medicare out of millions by billing for power wheelchairs that beneficiaries didn't want. Jan Michael Bliwas pleaded guilty in September to luring beneficiaries into ordering power scooters but billing for and delivering more expensive power wheelchairs. Bliwas is a partner in CBI Co., which does business as Active Solutions.
