Police: 4 arrested in connection with medical insurance fraudPosted: Updated:
Police say two chiropractors and two administrators from the Pain Relief and Wellness Center scammed insurance companies out of $80 million.
The scheme allegedly involved submitting phone insurance claims, fabricating medical records and doubling billing over the course of six years.
Video shows FBI agents raiding the clinic, formerly known as Dolson Avenue Medical, last August.
A year later, authorities have arrested brothers James and Jeffrey Spina Thursday, who are both chiropractors for the pain management clinic.
The center's business manager, Andrea Grossman, and practice administrator, Kim Spina, were also arrested.
All four appeared in federal district court in White Plains Thursday and are facing health care fraud charges.
Patients say they were not expecting this.
"I'm surprised," said Schubert Brookfield. "I heard about the incident last year, but I've been a patient here and the service has been great."
The center is still open and seeing patients. It is being operated by David Spina, another brother of the two chiropractors who were arrested Thursday.
Authorities also revealed that a Long Island-based neurologist affiliated with Dolson Avenue Medical has already pleaded guilty to health care fraud charges.
