TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey chiropractor has admitted submitting numerous fraudulent claims to an insurance company for treatments and office visits that were never performed.

The state Attorney General’s office says 66-year-old Charles Boas of Matawan pleaded guilty Monday to insurance fraud. The state will recommend that he get three years of probation when he’s sentenced in June, and his plea agreement also calls for a minimum one-year suspension of his chiropractic license.

Boas, whose practice was based in Bayonne, was charged in September 2012 with stealing about $13,000 as a result of the fraud, which occurred between October 2006 and August 2009.

Authorities say he has paid restitution to Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield.
