Former Algonquin Chiropractor Sentenced for Health Care Fraud

Bradley Mattson will spend 6 1/2 years in federal prison.

A local chiropractor has been sentenced to 6 1/2 years in federal prison after entering a guilty plea in September, "admitting to a 10-year scheme to defraud Blue Cross Blue Shield," according to the Northwest Herald. 

Bradley Mattson, 51, of Lake Forest co-owned six clinics, including Algonquin Physical Medicine, and submitted almost $5.9 million in unnecessary tests or services that he did not provide and brought in "almost $2.1 million in reimbursements, which he was ordered to repay," according to the Northwest Herald.

I have a dentist who treats my mouth like a gold mine... Never had a cavity in my life.
