A rural Chicago chiropractic doctor has actually been sentenced to a 20-month term in federal jail for fraudulently submitting compensation claims to private insurance providers and Medicare for nonexistent treatment, the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois announced.
John Kosloski, who ran Diagnostic & & Therapeutic Rehab in Dolton, Ill., likewise was ordered by U.S. District Chief Judge Rebecca R. Pallmeyer to pay a $25,000 fine and more than $500,000 in restitution to insurance providers.
From 2010 to 2017, Kosloski billed the private insurers for services that he supposedly offered to Amtrak workers and their member of the family, understanding that he was not actively treating them or had actually never ever seen them as clients. Kosloski paid cash to the Amtrak employees in exchange for the capability to falsely expense using the workers' and their family members' individual details. During the course of his scheme, Kosloski sent more than 18,000 claims to insurance providers for services that he understood he did not provide, and he received more than $500,000 in reimbursements for the false claims.
Kosloski, 57, of Beecher, Ill., pleaded guilty last year to one count of healthcare scams

Lausch, Jr., United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois; Emmerson Buie, Jr., Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago Field Office of the FBI; and Basil P. Demczak, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Central Region of Amtrak's Office of Inspector General.
