Rhonda Houser pleaded guilty in December to a felony charge of knowing health care fraud was going on at the nursing homes and not reporting it.
She could be sentenced to a minimum of one year of supervised release or as much as three years in a federal prison.
The sentencing will be take place at 1:30 p.m. in the Rome Federal Building on East First Street.
George Houser was sentenced to 20 years in prison for health care fraud and tax charges.
He operated three nursing homes — Moran Lake and Mt. Berry in Rome and Wildwood in Brunswick.
He claimed he and his wife were equals in using money from Medicaid and Medicare for real estate purchases and personal expenses, but prosecutors called George Houser “the mastermind” behind the scheme.
According to court documents, “Rhonda was a licensed (real estate agent) with no experience in nursing home administration prior to May 2003. Houser was actively engaged in the nursing home business years before he met his wife. Rhonda signing some of the provider agreements instead of the defendant is irrelevant for purposes of this adjustment.”
Rhonda Houser was indicted with her husband in April 2010 but struck the plea deal with prosecutors.
Her role, according to court documents, was when she “assisted in concealing the offense by receiving a payment from the Moran Lake checking account that falsely indicated that the payment was from management fees. Those funds should have been used to pay for supplies and other necessities in the nursing home.”
