DALLAS (AP) — A father and son in North Texas have been convicted for their roles in a health care scheme that netted them $1.4 million in fraudulent Medicare billing.
Federal prosecutors say a jury earlier this month found 66-year-old Lawrence Dale St. John and 41-year-old Jeffrey Dale St. John guilty of a variety of charges that include conspiracy to commit health care fraud.
The Grand Prairie men face up to 10 years in prison on each count and a $250,000 fine when they’re sentenced in January.
Prosecutors say they operated a company called A Medical House Calls, which claimed to provide services to in-home Medicare beneficiaries but which were never rendered.
The men submitted fraudulent billing from May 2010 to January 2012.
