WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita chiropractor has admitted he defrauded health care programs out of $1.3 million.

Thirty-three-year-old Jeffrey Fenn pleaded guilty Monday to one count of health care fraud, two counts of aggravated identity theft and one count of tax evasion. A grand jury had indicted Fenn on 22 counts in October.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Fenn submitted false claims to Medicare, two insurance companies and the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program through his businesses, Wichita Health and Wellness, Fenn Chiropractic and Wichita Pain Associates.

Sentencing was scheduled for Oct. 20. Attorneys for both sides have agreed to recommend a sentence of five years and restitution of more than $1.8 million.
