DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - 69-year old Terry Anderson of Dallas is going to federal prison for eight years and his 38-year old son Rocky will join him for the first seven.

The two men managed to cheat Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Texas out of $27 million in a hearing aid fraud scheme.

The men submitted false medical claims for hearing aids for customers who didn't need or want them. Sometimes, they didn't get the aids.

Most of those customers were American Airlines employees who were duped into getting a hearing test for a free set of sunglasses.

The Andersons lived pretty well off that money. The feds seized a 300-acre ranch outside of Waco plus three vehicles and found over $3 million in various banks and investment firms.
