Gwendolyn Climmons-Johnson, the owner and operator of Urgent Response EMS, a Houston area ambulance company, was sentenced to 97 months in prison and to pay roughly $1M for her role in a $2.4M Medicare fraud scheme. In October she had been convicted by a federal jury in Houston of four counts of health care fraud. According to evidence presented at trial, from January 2010 through December 2011, Climmons-Johnson and others conspired to enrich themselves by submitting false and fraudulent claims to Medicare for ambulance services that were medically unnecessary and/or not provided.
