Here's something you don't read every day.

It is being reported that four people have been charged after it was discovered that they were behind an operation that saw false brain surgery claims being filed with an insurance company.

According to reports, the four accused people billed a health insurance company for 20 brain surgeries that never even took place, some of which took place on the same person on multiple occasions.

20 brain surgeries, some with the same person.

New York-based Group Health Incorporated is the name of the health insurance company who was taken for a ride by a 36-year-old from New York City who claimed nine brain surgeries for himself, along with his wife and two sons.

The family supposedly billed the insurance company for a total of $142,268, and based on the claims, they paid more than $300,000 in reimbursements

Sounds like something from a Mel Brooks movie.
