Mississippi nurse sentenced in health care fraud scheme


Federal authorities in Mississippi say a nurse has been sentenced to a year and a half in prison for her role in a health care fraud scheme.

Thirty-seven year-old Fallon Page was sentenced in Hattiesburg. Prosecutors said Page was part of a scheme to perform sham medical exams of insured people so a doctor could prescribe unneeded, expensive medications.

The doctor was sentenced to four years in prison in connection with the case last month.

Page has also been ordered to pay $9,500.
