Former Kansas City chiropractor sentenced for Medicare fraud
KANSAS CITY - A former Kansas City chiropractor was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison for Medicare fraud.
Federal prosecutors say 59-year-old Michael Kelly Miller was also ordered Tuesday to pay $879,582 in restitution for proceeds he received as operator of the Waldo Rehabilitation Health & Wellness.
Miller pleaded guilty in April to submitting Medicare claims for nerve block injections and other experimental procedures that were not medically necessary. Between February 2009 and December 2011 Miller billed Medicare for more than $3 million and received nearly $900,000.
Miller, now of Temple Terrace, Florida, has surrendered his chiropractic license.
