Spencer Brown will spend the next year in jail after pleading guilty to one count of Medicaid fraud. The charges resulted from the submission of Medicaid claims for dental services that were never provided.
According to the government, Mr. Brown submitted the false and fraudulent claims to Medicaid in his capacity as an employee of a dental practice operated by his wife, Lisa Valentine, D.D.S. Mr. Brown allegedly billed the Medicaid program $156,918 for services that were never rendered.
After completing his jail term, Mr. Brown will be placed on supervised probation for five years. He must also complete 150 hours of community service and pay $156,918 in restitution to the Medicaid program.
The government aggressively prosecutes anyone who submits false claims to Medicaid or Medicare. If you are under investigation for Medicaid fraud or have been charged with a crime, then you should consult with an experienced Medicaid fraud attorney immediately to protect your rights.
