SPENCER, Iowa (AP) - A chiropractor accused of improper Medicaid billings says Iowa officials are wrong about coverage eligibility for some conditions.

Prosecutors said Thursday that Elizabeth Kressin, of Spencer, had submitted improper claims for more than seven years for what the prosecutors said were medically unnecessary chiropractic procedures for which payments weren’t allowed. They include bed wetting, colic and ear infections.

The prosecutors said there have been no admission and no court determination of liability.

In a prepared statement, Kressin says she has consistently disputed the administrators’ conclusions but settled the allegations for more than $62,000 because that was cheaper than going to trial to prove the government was wrong.

Kressin says state administrators have been unable to recognize certain symptoms in pediatric cases required chiropractic treatment.
