Ohio Physician Guilty of Workers' Comp Fraud
By Barry Zalma - March 24, 2013

Eric Barker, D.C., a Dayton, Ohio, physician who was banned from treating injured workers in 2009 pleaded guilty to workers' compensation fraud after he was caught using the information of another physician in order to receive reimbursement from the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC).

Barker was sentenced in a Franklin County courtroom March 5 and must repay more than $16,000, the BWC announced. According to the BWC, its investigators learned the business, located at 1353 Woodman Drive, had been sold to Barker, who was decertified as a BWC provider in 2009 due to a felony conviction.
An analysis revealed BWC reimbursed approximately $8,000 to Teeters Chiropractic after that sale for chiropractic manipulation, evaluation and management and consultation services that were in fact rendered by Barker.
The bills were submitted using another assigned BWC provider number as a way of circumventing Barker's exclusion from the workers' compensation system.
Barker confessed to treating injured workers and billing for the services after he was decertified by using another chiropractor's provider number.
He pleaded guilty to a felony count of workers' compensation fraud. Franklin County Judge Julie Lynch ordered him to pay $8,587.57 in restitution to BWC, in addition to and $8,000 for investigative costs. He was also sentenced to five years of community control, which will cease once he pays full restitution.
