In an update to a September 21, 2023, story, Travis Gober was sentenced to 19 months in prison. Read a Department of Justice press release

Travis Gober pleaded guilty to health care fraud and aggravated identity theft charges for submitting over $1 million in fraudulent claims for sleep studies to Medicare. According to court records, Gober owned the VIP Sleep Center, which submitted thousands of claims to Medicare for sleep studies that were not actually performed on patients. The claims also falsely stated that the patients had been referred for the sleep studies by physicians with whom Gober had previously worked. This was done because Medicare will not pay for a sleep study unless the patient was referred by a physician. Read a Department of Justice press release.
