Twin Cities chiropractors charged with 'simple but widespread' insurance fraud

 


Federal prosecutors have charged 21 people — including six Twin Cities chiropractors — in connection with a series of parallel fraud schemes that allegedly bilked insurance companies out of more than $20 million over the past five years.

The chiropractors are accused of systematically paying recruiters, or “runners,” to identify victims of car accidents or people willing to claim that they were in a collision. They then submitted insurance claims and received reimbursements for services that were either not medically needed or were never rendered, according to the charges.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger, who announced the charges in Minneapolis Wednesday afternoon, said the alleged schemes were nearly identical, even though executed by different chiropractors.
