A dentist in Florida has been accused by the Florida Attorney General’s Office and 58 patients of needlessly pulling children’s teeth in a scheme to defraud Medicaid. As you may know, Medicaid fraud of this sort is known as “overutilization.” The term requires more definition, it’s when a doctor performs unnecessary surgeries, tests, or procedures in order to bill more money to Medicaid. The accused dentist in this instance has billed $4 million in four years to Medicaid by using this procedure.
