Medicare fraud scheme puts Louisiana woman, others behind bars

A recent report from the Federal Bureau of Investigation indicates that a 47-year-old woman from Louisiana will be placed in prison. She has been accused of Medicare fraud and was sentenced earlier this month after pleading guilty to a single conspiracy to commit fraud charge in January.
