BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — A Bakersfield chiropractor pleaded guilty to health care fraud on Monday.
Na Young Eoh, 44, was a chiropractor at Pain Relief Medical Health Centers, which was headquartered in Los Angeles and had clinics Los Angeles County as well as in Bakersfield, Visalia, and Fresno.
Eoh admitted that she submitted bills to workers’ compensation insurers in which she improperly billed them for medical-legal evaluations which she was not legally permitted to do, according to the Office of the United States Attorney.
Two other defendants, Bahar Gharib-Danesh, and John Terrence, of Marina Del Rey, were charged with participating in the same scheme.
Eoh faces a maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Eoh is scheduled to be sentenced in September.
