A federal jury convicted a Chicago anesthesiologist for billing for services that were purportedly provided to assist chiropractors performing manipulation under anesthesia at his surgical center.

The U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinios said the jury found Dr. Paul Madison guilty of all 11 counts filed against him.

Madison, 65, owns the Watertower SurgiCenter, an outpatient surgical center in Chicago.  From 2005 to 2009. Madison directed Watertower’s billing staff to submit false bills to insurers for manipulation-under-anesthesia procedures, the office said.

Prosecutors say Madison and others falsified patient records to support the fraudulent claims. 

The grand jury indictment includes six counts of health care fraud, three counts of making false statements in connection with the delivery of health care services, and two counts of aggravated identity theft.  U.S. District Judge Robert M. Dow, Jr., set sentencing for March 25.
