Minnetonka attorney sentenced for health care fraud conspiracy

According to Sutor’s guilty plea and court documents, between 2015 and 2016 he ran a program to defraud car insurance policy providers. In particular, he has conspired with chiropractors and patient recruiters, also known as “runners”. The chiropractor would pay the runner a fee for each person the runner brought to the chiropractor’s clinic to become a patient, and the sutor would pay the runner a fee for each person who became a customer of him.

The law firm said the patients were being paid to receive chiropractic services. Sutor, chiropractors, and runners have taken steps to hide their system, including repayments in cash or checks that appear to be legitimate legal services.

In his informed consent form, Sutor admitted to sending an attorney solicitation letter to an insurance company providing chiropractic services on behalf of a recruited patient that he knew were not being performed.
