Doctors Randall E. Woodward and Patrick K. Osborne also were ordered to pay restitution to the Department of Labor and Industries and Premera Blue Cross. Late last week, L&I received a check for $78,789.97. Premera was paid $70,000. The pair also paid $3,000 in fines.
The convictions came after an 18-month investigation by the FBI, the U.S. Postal Service, Premera Blue Cross, Orion Insurance Co. and fraud experts in L&I's Provider Fraud Program. The pair, who provided chiropractic services for injured workers, provided unneccesary treatment or billed Premera Blue Cross for treatments not received.
In addition to the repayment, L&I has revoked the two chiropractors eligibility to treat workers injured on the job.
