NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The owner of a New Orleans medical service company and a doctor who served as the company’s medical director have been sentenced to prison for their involvement in a $34 million Medicare fraud scheme.

The Department of Justice said in a news release Wednesday 60-year-old Elaine Davis, of New Orleans, was sentenced to 96 months in prison and 67-year-old Dr. Pramela Ganji, of Harahan, received 72 months prison sentence. Chief U.S. District Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt imposed the sentences and scheduled a hearing to determine restitution owed by both defendants for Dec. 7.

A jury convicted Davis and Ganji each of one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and one count of health care fraud.
