A Chandler woman, Frances Jones, was sentenced to 36 months in prison after pleading guilty to health care fraud.
Jones, age 52, is a licensed Medicare provider of durable medical equipment and the owner and operator of Oxicheck Northwest. She admitted that she fraudulently billed Medicare between 2011 and March 2018 for durable medical equipment that was not provided to patients. Jones also used Medicare patient and medical provider identification without their knowledge or consent, according to the Department of Justice.
The Court ordered Jones to pay $862,762.32 in restitution for losses incurred by the Medicare Program as a result of her fraudulent scheme.
