Foley Chiropractor Pleads Guilty To Healthcare Fraud
United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announces that defendant Richard Rizzuto has pled guilty to engaging in a healthcare fraud scheme. Rizzuto is a chiropractor who serviced patients at his chiropractic clinic, Chiro Partners, Inc. (formerly Back on Track Chiropractic), located in Foley, Alabama.
In his plea agreement, Rizzuto admitted that from April 2009 through September 2013, he knowingly and intentionally billed Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Alabama for certain exercise procedures that were not actually performed on patients at his clinic. During the relevant time period, Rizzuto received nearly $400,000 in reimbursements for the exercise treatments he billed to BC/BS. At sentencing, the Court will determine how much of that total amount is attributable to Rizzuto’s fraud scheme.
This case was investigated by FBI—Mobile and is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Alabama.
