Chiropractor, Practice Ordered to Pay $5 Million

August 27, 2020

A chiropractor and her medical practice have been ordered to pay more than $5 million to resolve a civil fraud complaint filed by the federal government. According to court documents, the United States alleges that the chiropractor and her medical practice violated the False Claims Act by submitting claims to Medicare for hundreds of surgical procedures involving implantable neurostimulators when, in actuality, the practice used an acupuncture device commonly referred to as a “P-Stim.” While Medicare pays thousands of dollars for the surgical neurostimulator procedure, it does not cover acupuncture services.
