Unlicensed Health Care Provider Indicted in Texas

February 17, 2005

The Texas Department of Insurance, working in conjunction with the Collin County District Attorney’s Office, announced an indictment against Don Bauer of Plano for insurance fraud.

Bauer, who had not held a valid chiropractor license since 1996, allegedly billed insurance companies for radiology services as a Doctor of Chiropractic Care (D.C.). Records show over 1,300 separate claims submitted under a false license, with an aggregate loss of over $200,000 to 31 separate insurance companies.

The case was investigated by TDI’s Fraud Unit with assistance from the Collin County DA’s office. The offense of submitting a claim when unauthorized to do so is punishable by fines and imprisonment.
