A rural Chicago chiropractic doctor has actually been sentenced to a 20-month term in federal prison for fraudulently submitting repayment claims to private insurance companies and Medicare for nonexistent treatment, the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois announced.
John Kosloski, who operated Diagnostic & & Therapeutic Rehab in Dolton, Ill., also 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 insurance providers for services that he supposedly provided to Amtrak employees and their member of the family, knowing that he was not actively treating them or had never ever seen them as patients. Kosloski paid money to the Amtrak staff members in exchange for the ability to falsely expense using the workers' and their family members' personal details. During the course of his plan, Kosloski sent more than 18,000 claims to insurance companies for services that he knew he did not offer, and he received more than $500,000 in compensations for the incorrect claims.
Kosloski, 57, of Beecher, Ill., pleaded guilty in 2015 to one count of healthcare scams
The sentence was revealed by John R. 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.
