A former North Jersey chiropractor who was stripped of his license to practice more than a decade ago, has been charged with masterminding a medical fraud ring that allegedly bilked nearly $4 million from numerous insurance carriers. In an indictment handed up in Morris County Superior Court, Philip Potacco was charged with conspiracy, money laundering, and a host of other crimes in connection with the scheme he allegedly ran from his South Orange Medical Facility Consulting Group LLC (“SOTC”), 2010 to 2015. Potacco, whose chiropractic license was revoked in 2002, allegedly hired a licensed chiropractor to act as a straw owner of SOTC while he ran it covertly. Potacco allegedly used illegal “runners” to recruit accident patients to the facility, including people who had staged their crashes. Potacco then fraudulently submitted insurance claims for those patients, using the billing information of the licensed chiropractor he had hired, prosecutors said. Some of those claims were for services that were never rendered, according to prosecutors. NJ
