Broward County Chiropractor Pleads Guilty to Insurance Fraud Involving Accident Staging Ring

On Tuesday, Broward county chiropractor Jennifer Adams, 39, of Boca Raton, admitted to one count of conspiring to commit mail fraud and agreed to pay more than $1.92 million in restitution to 10 insurance companies.

Adams permitted her name to be used to create two chiropractic clinics: Ovy Rehabilitation Medical Center, Inc. in West Palm Beach, and Chiropractic Office of South Florida, LLC in Palm Springs. Both clinics submitted fraudulent PIP claims on behalf of individuals involved in staged accidents.

Adams, a chiropractor in Florida since 1999, agreed to relinquish her medical licenses. According to the Sun-Sentinel report:

The maximum punishment is 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000 though she will likely face a much lesser penalty when she is sentenced by U.S. District Judge Daniel T. K. Hurley in federal court in West Palm Beach in the next several weeks.
