Tufts University School of Dental Medicine Agreed to Pay $841,000 for Allegedly Violating the Civil Monetary Penalties Law by Submitting Claims for Services by Non-Credentialed Dentists and Services Not Provided as Claimed

Trustees of Tufts College and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine (TUSDM), Massachusetts, agreed to pay $841,120.88 for allegedly violating the Civil Monetary Penalties Law. The OIG alleged that TUSDM submitted claims to Medicare for various services from four of their clinics. The OIG contends that these claims were improper because the services were provided by dentists who were not credentialed by Medicare and/or the services or the code level billed were not supported by sufficient medical record documentation.
