Texas home health agency owners, doctor get jail time for $60M Medicare fraud

The owners of several Texas home health agencies pleaded guilty to a $60 million Medicare fraud plot and were sentenced to stays in federal prison.

Dallas-based Healthcare Liaison Professionals owner Myrna Parcon and former doctor and part-owner Ransome Etindi pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud and will serve 10-year and 2 1/2-year prison sentences, respectively. A federal judge ordered Parcon to pay $51.5 million and Etindi to pay $18.3 million for billing Medicare at an “alarming rate” generally for the most comprehensive physician exam and always adding a prolonged service code, investigators said.
