License Investigation Against Chiropractor Closed with Letter of Guidance

Posted on Firm News by Erin Ferber

The Firm successfully defended a Chiropractor against allegations that the Chiropractor had engaged in billing fraud and used inadequately trained personnel to provide certain services.

The Firm investigated the allegations at issue and prepared a response to the investigative complaint that highlighted evidence that demonstrated that the Chiropractor had acted properly, had not engaged in billing fraud, had used appropriate personnel, and had not violated the Practice Act.  After consideration of the submission prepared by the Firm, the Probable Cause Panel for the licensing board agreed with the Firm’s position and determined that probable cause did not exist and directed that the case against the Chiropractor be closed by the Florida Department of Health with a Letter of Guidance.
