Toms River Chiropractor Confesses to Patient Referral Scheme

A Toms River Chiropractor confesses to his participation in a bribes for patient referral scheme. Norman Eastburn, age 48, of Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of violating the Anti-Kickback statute in Newark federal court Wednesday.

According to New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman, Eastburn referred a number of patients from his Toms River practice to a licensed pain management physician in exchange for a cash fee per patient.

Fishman said that not only did Eastburn indicate to the pain management doctor that his involvement would help increase the chances that he would be reimbursed by insurers but he even misled a patient by telling her that she required an injection that was not medically necessary.

Eastburn faces a five-year maximum prison term for violation of the Anti-Kickback statute and a $250,000 fine. He also agreed to forfeit the money he was paid in bribes. Sentencing is scheduled for July 8, 2014.
