Canadian therapist fined $20,000 for billing for fake therapy sessions.
Dr. Maninder Singh Badyal is the owner of Absolute Health and Wellness Clinic in Surrey. The clinic offers massage therapy, physiotherapy, and chiropractic care. Eleven patients were directed to meet with Badyal, although none of them actually went to the clinic for chiropractic treatment. However, the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) was billed for treatments and consultations that patients never received. When the ICBC Special Investigation Unit (SUI) reviewed the transactions, investigators found irregularities with the billing pattern of the clinic.
