New Jersey Chiropractor Pleads Guilty to Ffraud

January 14, 2013

A New Jersey chiropractor charged with ten others in what prosecutors say was a scheme to recruit accident victims as patients and then falsely bill insurance companies has pleaded guilty.

State Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa says 53-year-old Scott Greenberg of Franklin Township pleaded guilty Friday in Somerset County to charges of theft by deception, conspiracy and criminal running activity.

Chiesa says Greenberg also admitted to growing marijuana plants and pleaded guilty to a related drug charge.

Prosecutors say Greenberg admitted to obtaining more than $650,000 in fraudulent insurance reimbursements. He also admitted to illegally paying so-called “runners” a fee for every accident patient they recruited to his chiropractic centers in Central and North Jersey.

Prosecutors are recommending Greenberg get eight years in prison at his March 1 sentencing.
