Physical therapist sentenced on fraud charges

FRAMINGHAM

A Framingham physical therapist has been sentenced in federal court to three years of probation for health care fraud, according to the office of U.S. Attorney Michael J. Sullivan.

Ho Ling Lai, 38, caused Medicare to be billed for $55,000 worth of physical therapy she did not provide, prosecutors said.

She was sentenced to three years of probation, the first five months of which will be spent in home detention, and a fine of $3,000. She also agreed to pay $32,094 in restitution.
