South Carolina Chiropractor Pleads Guilty and Agrees to $9 Million False Claims Act Consent Judgment


On Nov. 8, the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina entered a $9 million civil consent judgment for the United States against South Carolina chiropractor Daniel McCollum under the False Claims Act. On that same day, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of South Carolina filed an information and plea agreement in which Mccollum admitted to engaging in a conspiracy to pay illegal kickbacks and to defraud healthcare programs by billing for unnecessary medical services. The maximum criminal penalty Mccollum could face is five years in prison and a fine of $250,000. A sentencing date has not been set.
