JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) — Three family members have been sentenced to prison in Tennessee for defrauding federal health care programs of millions of dollars by selling back braces and power wheelchairs to people who did not need them in three states. Sandra Bailey, her husband, Calvin, and son Bryan were convicted after a three-week trial in February in Jackson, Tennessee, of charges including health care fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy. The Baileys told patients in Tennessee, Kentucky and Mississippi that they could receive power wheelchairs and back braces at no cost, though Medicare.
