A Michigan-based patient recruiter for home health care agencies was convicted, following trial, for her role in a scheme to bill Medicare for claims arising from illegal kickbacks. Together with co-conspiring home healthcare agencies, Sophia Eggleston defrauded Medicare of $1.1 million.

Eggleston faces sentencing in February. DOJ
