The No-Fault Clinic Controllers also instructed the clinic doctors to prescribe excessive and unwarranted referrals for various "modality treatments" for nearly every patient they saw. The treatments included physical therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic treatments - as much as five times per week for each - and treatments for psychology, neurology, orthopedics and audiology. Clinic doctors also prescribed unnecessary MRI's, x-rays, orthopedics, and medical supplies. The No-Fault Clinic Controllers received thousands of dollars in kickbacks for patient referrals from the owners of the modality clinics ("Modality Controllers"). ANIKEYEV and SLOBODYANSKY were two such Modality Controllers who admitted to billing insurance companies for treatments that patients did not need.
