Elizabeth Kressin, D.C., from Spencer, Iowa, has agreed to pay $62,349 to resolve allegations she violated the False Claims Act by improperly billing the Medicaid system for medically unnecessary chiropractic procedures and for the treatment of conditions for which payment is not allowed, including bed wetting, colic and ear infections. The government alleged that Kressin caused the submission of the improper claims from January 1, 2008, through June 30, 2015. The claims settled by the agreement are allegations only; there has been no admission or judicial determination of liability.
