North Carolina Dental Services Chain Pays $10 Million to Resolve False Claims Allegations
Date:4/9/2008

mber 8, 2005. Under the terms of these consent orders, each of the dentists agreed not to contest allegations that dentists employed and trained by MDC performed excessive treatment on seven of MDC's pediatric patients by performing pulpotomies and placing stainless steel crowns when they were not warranted or supported by x-rays or appropriate diagnostic documentation. As part of today's settlement, the Office of Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has expressly reserved its exclusion authority against MDC and Drs. DeRose and Ballance.

"Health care professionals who abuse their positions and engage in excessive treatment regimens and excessive billing practices will not be tolerated," said Gretchen C.F. Shappert, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina. "The North Carolina Medicaid Program was not created for self-enrichment. It is a public trust. Individuals who use their professional skills to take advantage of that trust will be investigated and held to account for their actions."

"This settlement with the Medicaid Dental Center demonstrates the commitment of the Office of Inspector General and our law enforcement partners to protect our Nation's children," said Daniel R. Levinson, Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. "The Medicaid program is intended to assist the most vulnerable Americans and to help ensure that they receive necessary health services, not to unjustly enrich others at the expense of indigent persons."

The investigation and settlement of the case was conducted by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of North Carolina and the Department's Civil Division, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Postal Service's Office of Postal Inspection, the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, and the North Carolina Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Investigations Unit.
