The federal government has been losing a lot of money from people that make false insurance claims for medical and other cases. The latest of these cases that has been uncovered involves MB2 Dental and other 21 practices in Texas. The company has been ordered to make payments amounting to 8.5 million to the federal government as repayment for claims that were falsely made on pediatric insurance premiums.
The company was set up to coordinate the provision of dental services for many practices. Their services include but aren’t limited to making insurance claims and on behalf of the practices that are affiliated to them and generally making sure that business is running as it should.
The attorney who was in charge of the case stated that the claims were made between 2009 and 2014 and that it was after a series of investigations that the state realized the claims were not related to any dental services that had been rendered.
The lawyer confirmed that this was the first of the many steps that the company was making to ensure that taxpayers stopped losing money through fraudulent deals. Among the mistakes that the company had made was the use of wrong Medicaid provider numbers and also violations of the anti-kickback laws. Most of the claims that had been made by MB2 were related to the pediatric practice.
On top of the amount of money that was set out to be paid by the company to the state, there are certain people in the leadership of the company that will be expected to take up some personal liability in the case. Learn more about MB2 Dental: http://mb2dental.com/
