Skeptic News: Chiro padding bills

20120726-050039.jpgAt Crestwood chiropractic centre in St Louis, the chiropractor and an employee have been indicted for billing insurance companies for work that was never done, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

Dr. Anthony Calandro, 55, of Chesterfield, and his billing assistant, Sherry Rueter, 62, of St. Louis County, billed insurance companies for X-rays that were never taken and appointments that had been canceled or missed, prosecutors said. The charges are the result of two undercover investigations in 2010 and 2011, they said.

Calandro, Rueter and the Chiropractic Accident Centre each face one felony count of health care fraud and four felony counts of making false statements related to health care services.
