MCALLEN - A former McAllen doctor is now ordered to prison following his conviction of a healthcare fraud scheme.

Dr. Eduardo Carrillo ran an office in Mission.

He pleaded guilty back in November of 2015 when he admitted to having his office staff bill Medicare for patients who were actually deceased.

Carrillo and his assistant Martha Uribe Medrano also got cash kickbacks for illegal patient referrals to home healthcare agencies.

Medrano pled guilty and was previously sentenced.

Thursday a two year sentence was announced for Carrillo.

He's also ordered to pay nearly $30,000 in restitution.
