Sean Nisivoccia, a suspended chiropractor has been from Clifton, New Jersey has been indicted for attempted theft by deception, theft by deception, and four counts of health care claims fraud, all second-degree offenses.  The State alleges that between April 2000 and June 2004 he  fraudulently billed several insurance companies more than $230,000 by creating the false impression that he personally performed nerve conduction studies or nerve conduction velocity (NCV) tests on his patients and that he was qualified to perform such tests, when, in fact, he did not personally perform such tests, nor was he qualified to perform them.

This is a classic case that probably could have been prevented.  The case was referred to the Office of the Insurance Fraud Prosecutor in New Jersey by one of the insurance companies.  I would bet that Nisivoccia was contacted by the insurance company before law enforcement was involved.  However, I think he blew them off as they filed suit against him. 

I’m sure this whole case could have been resolved if he would have called an attorney from the start.  How do I know?  I’ve done it in my own practice.  The AG’s office is pretty good with working cases out pre-indictment.   

Press release is here.
