A southern New Jersey doctor has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for charging Medicare for house calls she claimed were longer than they actually were.

Fifty-two-year-old Lori Reaves of Waterford Works, N.J., received her sentence Thursday.

She previously pleaded guilty to one count of health care fraud, admitting she inflated how much time she spent seeing patients through her Hammonton-based practice, Visiting Physicians of South Jersey.

Authorities say she brought in more than $500,000 in the scheme and that she was the highest billing home care provider among New Jersey’s 24,000 doctors between January 2008 and October 2011.

Judge Freda Wolfson also ordered her to pay restitution.
