 Thursday, July 6, 2017


A Los Altos acupuncturist has been charged with fraudulently billing insurance companies for treatments that he never gave, Santa Clara County prosecutors said Monday. According to the district attorney’s office, in December 2014 the California Department of Insurance received a tip that 53-year-old Aifeng Su had billed insurance companies for treatment visits that never happened. Two of Su’s patients, a husband and wife, later discovered that he had billed their insurance company for treatments that never occurred. According to prosecutors, Su received about $12,000 in payments for more than 60 phantom treatments.
