DALLAS (AP) – A North Texas physician has been convicted of health care fraud in a $3 million billing scam for unnecessary home services since 2006.

Prosecutors say Dr. Joseph Megwa of Arlington was convicted of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and three counts of health care fraud. He faces up to 10 years in prison on each count.

Megwa was also convicted of four counts of making false statements related to claims submitted to Medicare. Prosecutors say some home visits or house calls to patients were never made. The doctor faces up to five years in prison for each of those counts.

A jury in Dallas on Monday also convicted a home health care manager and registered nurse, Ebolose Eghobor of Grand Prairie, of conspiracy to commit health care fraud.
