Health care fraud


A Framingham woman pleaded guilty to health care fraud in federal court earlier this week, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Ho Ling Lai, a physical therapist, allegedly caused Medicare to be billed for at least $55,000 worth of physical therapy that she either did not provide or provided incompletely.

She is set to be sentenced on Nov. 27.
