The South Dakota Board of Chiropractic Examiners has revoked the license of Larry L. Jones, DC of Yankton effective immediately.  Dr. Jones will not be allowed to reapply for a license for five years.

The board action stems from the fact that Dr. Jones has been charged by the State of South Dakota in a criminal information for making false claims, which is a Class 5 felony.  

Dr. Jones admitted that between January 1, 2005 and March 31, 2011, he submitted claims for reimbursement to Medicaid, while knowing the claims to be false.  Dr. Jones also admitted that he submitted similar false claims to Medicare.
