New Jersey law enforcement officials have charged 11 people in what prosecutors say was a scheme to recruit accident victims as patients for chiropractors who then falsely billed insurance companies.
Among those arrested are three chiropractors: 51-year-old Scott Greenberg of Franklin Township, Somerset County; 39-year-old Christopher Montana of Chester, Morris County; and 39-year-old Fernando Barrese of Washington Township, Bergen County.
After-hours messages were left Wednesday for lawyers retained by Montana and Barrese. Greenberg had not yet retained an attorney.
Prosecutors said the three paid so-called “runners” a fee for every accident patient they recruited to their practices.
Several of the alleged runners also have been charged.
Greenberg owns a New Brunswick chiropractic center. Montana and Barrese own chiropractic centers in Elizabeth, Newark and Jersey City.
