2 convicted in $17 million Medicare fraud scheme

 

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two people have been convicted in federal court in Baton Rouge of running a scheme that defrauded Medicare of $17 million.

Sixty-four-year-old Louis T. Age of Slidell, and his former wife, 60-year-old Verna S. Age, of New Orleans, were convicted Friday.

The Advocate reports that the pair operated South Louisiana Home Health Care Inc., which provided home health-care services to patients in the New Orleans and Houma areas.

The judge did not immediately set a sentencing date following Friday's jury verdict.
