WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita chiropractor has been charged with carrying out a $1.3 million health care fraud scheme.

The U.S. attorney's office says 32-year-old Jeffrey D. Fenn, of Wichita, surrendered his license Friday, the same day a federal indictment was unsealed.

The 26-count indictment alleges that Fenn submitted false claims to Medicare and other health care benefit providers for services that were medically unnecessary or were never performed.

Fenn is also accused of evading taxes by overstating his business deductions by $367,000 in 2011. He's also charged with identity theft and 16 counts of money laundering.

Online court records did not show an attorney for Fenn on Friday, and he does not have a listed phone number.
