Evidence showed that Parkman got more than $47,000 in kickbacks from equipment supply company owner Tracy Richardson Brown, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Justice.
Brown was convicted in 2016 and sentenced to six years and eight months in prison. Evidence showed she caused Medicare to pay more than $3.2 million for unnecessary equipment from 2004 to 2009, based on illegal referrals.
Parkman provided information about Medicare beneficiaries and got doctors to sign order forms for the unnecessary equipment, according to the statement.
She was convicted on two counts of conspiracy, two of health care fraud and five of receiving health care kickbacks.
