Dentists in New York Skim $3M from Medicaid?

New York state auditors have discovered some questionable billing practices among dentists. Officials say that the state may have paid $3 million in Medicaid claims for fraudulent dental procedures.

It’s not always easy to spot Medicaid fraud, but some dentists get too greedy to overlook.

Remember the dentist who billed for 30 fillings for a single one-hour pediatric dentistry appointment? In this case, dentists filed claims for typical dental treatments.

The problem? None of the patients actually had teeth. Nonetheless, Medicaid was billed for natural tooth procedures for these denture patients.

It’s not clear how widespread this problem, but the state comptroller has released information on the audits of 5 dentists. Over five years, these 5 dentists filed over $46,000 in improper Medicaid claims.
