DETROIT (WWJ) – A physician facing prison for her role in a Detroit Public Schools corruption case is accused of submitting Medicare claims for patients who already were dead.

Gwendolyn Washington was arraigned on health care fraud charges in federal court in Detroit. She also is accused of writing phony prescriptions and faces a hearing Tuesday.

Defense attorney Anthony Chambers told reporters he will address the charges at a later date. Washington is to be sentenced July 26 in the schools case.
