Va. Woman Sentenced for Health Care Fraud

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A Richmond woman has been sentenced to 11 years and three months in prison for health care fraud and other offenses.

A federal judge on Thursday also ordered Veronica Sharon Cunningham to pay more than $6.6 million in restitution to Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies, as well as more than $473,000 to the Internal Revenue Service.

A jury in March convicted Cunningham on 26 counts of health care fraud, eight counts of falsifying patient health care records and one count of filing a false tax return.

The 49-year-old Cunningham owned and operated Community Neurological Services, which administered intravenous immune globulin to patients suffering from immune deficiency disorders. She regularly billed insurance companies and the Medicare and Medicaid programs for intravenous immune globulin not actually administered.
