Medicare Fraud Case

August 31st, 2003

The medicare fraud case in Arkansas continues.

The next step is the sentencing phase.

Prosecutors claimed Patient Transfer Service was engaged in a conspiracy to cheat the government of hundreds of thousands of dollars by filing false claims for medicare services.

General manager Kevin Wise was convicted of helping to file false claims and office manager Shirley Wallace was convicted of the same charge.

In a decision released Friday, Judge James Moody ruled the jury's convictions of Wise and Wallace will stand.

A sentencing date for both and the company has not been set.
