Skeptic News: Lafayette chiropractor pleads to fraud

From: The Advocate

A Lafayette chiropractor pleaded guilty Thursday to federal health care fraud charges for billing an insurance company for more than $170,000 in treatments that were not done.

Michael Keith Johnsey, of Acadiana Doctors of Chiropractic in Lafayette, faces up to 10 years in prison on three counts of health care fraud in connection with hundreds of fraudulent billings to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana between 2008 and 2011.

Prosecutors also sought $176,243 in restitution.

Johnsey brought a check for the entire amount to the court hearing Thursday.
