Prison Term For Dental Billing Fraud, Unnecessary Procedures
An assistant in a Sacramento dentist’s office who submitted false claims for false and unnecessary dental work was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison on Thursday. Nichol Lomack processed insurance in the office of dentist David Lewis, whose practice targeted employees of United Parcel Service, whose dental plan provided 100 percent coverage without annual limits. In May, Lewis was sentenced to three years and 10 months in prison, fined $75,000 and ordered to pay $726,300 in restitution for his role in the health care fraud scheme. (Anderson, 10/13)
