Doctor Pleads Guilty To Working The System For Money

A doctor in the east has pleaded guilty to working the system for Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements.

Fifty-year-old Janet Johnson-Hunter of Jacksonville pleaded guilty in Federal Court. From January 2002, to August 2005, Johnson-Hunter instructed employees to conceal material facts in an effort to maximize the likelihood of reimbursements from Medicare and Medicaid, specifically for ambulance transports.

Officials say Johnson-Hunter bilked $400,000 out of the system in three and a half years.
