NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey man has been indicted on charges he obtained payments from Medicare and Medicaid for an ambulance company he allegedly operated, even though he was barred from getting such payments.

Federal prosecutors say Imadeldin Awad Khair faces counts of tax evasion, money laundering, health care fraud and obstruction of a federal audit. The 55-year-old Clifton man could face several decades in prison if convicted on all counts in the indictment handed up Monday.

Prosecutors say Khair was convicted on a state health care charge in 2003 and was excluded from participating in federal health care programs for at least 11 years.

But they say he’s been an operator and a de facto owner of Clifton-based K & S Invalid Coach since 2005.

A message left for Khair’s lawyer was not immediately returned Monday afternoon.
