A former Kansas City chiropractor was sentenced Tuesday to 15 months in federal prison for Medicare fraud.
Michael Kelly Miller, 59, was also ordered to pay $879,582 in restitution. Miller had pleaded guilty to submitting Medicare claims for nerve block injections and other experimental procedures that were not medically necessary or supported by medical research. Between February 2009 and December 2011 Miller billed Medicare more than $3 million and received nearly $900,000.
Miller, now of Temple Terrace, Fla., has surrendered his chiropractic license.
