NEW YORK (AP) - Four people connected to two clinics in Queens have pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit health care fraud in connection to more than $4 million in false Medicare claims.

Federal authorities announced the guilty pleas on Thursday.

They accused the defendants of putting in claims to Medicare from December 2010 through June 2013 for physical therapy, occupational therapy and chiropractic services that either weren’t medically needed, not provided, or didn’t qualify for reimbursement.

The four face prison terms of up to 10 years at sentencing, as well as having to pay restitution.
