DALLAS (AP) - Three more people have been convicted in a nearly $3 million health care fraud case involving Houston and Dallas-area companies.

Prosecutors say unlicensed doctors were recruited to treat patients at their homes and then wrongly bill Medicare.

A federal judge in Dallas on Wednesday convicted Godwin Umotong and Comfort Gates of Houston of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and health care fraud. A third person — Vagharshak Smbatyan of Grenada Hills, Calif., — was convicted of making a false statement to an agency.

All will be sentenced in July and face penalties ranging from five to 10 years per count.

Prosecutors say Umotong worked for Euless Healthcare Corp. in Hurst and Medic Healthcare Inc. of Houston. Gates worked for Medic.

Five others who earlier pleaded guilty await sentencing.
