Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has announced the arrest of a North Little Rock dentist for making false statements on billing records to the Arkansas Medicaid Program.
Brian Moore, DDS, 47, of Maumelle, is accused of billing the Arkansas Medicaid Program for services not rendered between January 24, 2016, and December 31, 2017, totaling about $9,000.
Following an investigation by the Attorney General’s Office, Moore was arrested on January 28 at his North Little Rock business. He is charged with two counts of Medicaid fraud, a Class B felony and a Class A misdemeanor.
“Moore has taken advantage of his young Medicaid patients and the Arkansas Medicaid Program,” said Rutledge. “I will not tolerate people cheating the Medicaid system and will continue to prosecute those who abuse this important safety net.”
Records indicate Moore submitted false dental information on patients between the ages of 2 and 21 so it would appear that they needed to receive and were eligible for various dental services such as amalgam and resin composite fillings to bill the Medicaid program.
The investigation is being conducted in cooperation with the two state dental managed care companies, Delta Dental of Arkansas and Managed Care of North America as well as with the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General.
