Texas Legislature Takes Aim at Dental Medicaid Fraud -- but will they hit the target

From WFAA (Dallas):
State Sen. Jane Nelson (R-Flower Mound) put it simply Wednesday, speaking to a group of reporters at a news conference in Austin:  "It is infuriating to hear of the kind of problems that are taking place... problems that are particularly serious in Medicaid dental, orthodontia and transportation for Medicaid patients," she said.

For the past two years, News 8 has been investigating the Texas Medicaid Dental program and hundreds of millions of dollars the state has spent on orthodontics under Medicaid.

Sen. Nelson specifically mentioned the parents of Medicaid children who had been solicited by "marketers" bearing free gifts and cash, the subject of several News 8 stories.
Senate Bill 8 is designed to cure some of those abuses.

Watch the news story.

  2. There are various types of fraudulent activity that you could be accused of, depending on your situation. A medical fraud defense attorney is the professional you need to turn to in order to gather information about your situation and what you can do about it.
