CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A Charleston dentist who falsely billed West Virginia Medicaid and West Virginia Medicaid Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) for more than $700,000 was sentenced today to five years in federal prison, announced United States Attorney Carol Casto. Antoine Skaff, 58, previously pleaded guilty to health care fraud. Skaff also previously entered into a civil settlement with the U.S. Attorney's Office, the Office of Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), DHHR's Bureau for Medical Services, and the West Virginia Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, in which he agreed to pay treble damages of $2.2 million, or three times the loss suffered by West Virginia Medicaid.
