Late yesterday, a federal jury in the Northern District of Texas convicted a physician and a home health agency manager for their participation in a $3 million Medicare fraud conspiracy. Joseph Megwa, M.D., and Ebolose Eghobor, R.N., were convicted of one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, and Megwa was convicted of three substantive counts of health care fraud. Eghobor was acquitted of the three substantive health care fraud counts brought against him. The home health care charges related to a scheme involving PTM Healthcare Services Inc.
