RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A Richmond woman faces prison time for health care fraud and other offenses.
Veronica Sharon Cunningham will be sentenced Thursday in federal court in Richmond. A jury in March convicted her on 26 counts of health care fraud, eight counts of falsifying patient health care records and one count of filing a false tax return.
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.
