Chiropractor faces health care fraud charges

Minnesota residents charged with white-collar crimes like embezzlement or tax evasion know that media reports of these cases provide only a small portion of the details. This can make it all too easy for people to automatically assume someone is guilty. Defendants, however, should always remember that they are due a fair .

A chiropractor with two offices in the Minneapolis area is in this situation today after being arrested and charged with two different federal conspiracy offenses. This case actually harkens back to one in which six other chiropractors and 15 other people were charged in late 2016 for alleged health care fraud related to billing for non-needed treatments. The latest arrest involves treatments billed against patients' personal injury protection automobile insurance.

The chiropractor is said to have paid people as much as $1,500 to direct patients in for treatments that they may not have actually needed to have done. He then is supposed to have billed vehicle insurance companies for maximum reimbursements. The actions are accused over a period of three years from 2012 to 2015. The consipiracy charges are to commit mail fraud and health care fraud. The potential consequences the chiropractor may face if he is eventually convicted are not known.

After being arrested and charged with serious federal crimes, Minnesotans may be able to learn more about the charges against them, the associated penalties and their defense options by talking with an experienced criminal defense attorney.
