Iris Allen was sentenced Thursday in federal court. She also is subject to a monetary judgment of nearly $1.3 million
Allen pleaded guilty in February to one count each of health care fraud and aggravated identity theft. She admitted taking nearly $800,000 from the Birth-Related Neurological Injury Compensation Fund.
Allen, who served as a benefits manager for the fund for more than four years, submitted false invoices for payments to companies she created.
