BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two Slidell residents have been sentenced in Baton Rouge to federal prison terms for health care frauds that cost Medicare $17.1 million.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/18xZ3BU ) 64-year-old Louis T. Age was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge James J. Brady to a prison term of 15 years. Age's ex-wife, 60-year-old Verna Age, received a 5-year sentence.

The judge ordered both to pay $17.1 million in restitution and forfeit $9.2 million in assets.

Federal prosecutors say Louis Age owned South Louisiana Home Health Care, which had offices in New Orleans and Houma. Verna Age was a part owner and also served as the firm's director of nursing.

Brady ordered Louis Age to report to federal prison on Sept. 19. The judge told Verna Age to report to prison Sept. 16.
