Lifepoint Dental Group, LLC, and its owners Aaron Blass, Angelina Blass, Mindy Richtsmeier, and Brad Richtsmeier, agreed to pay more than $300,000 to settle allegations that they violated the False Claims Act by submitting claims for dental procedures, including scalings and root planings, that were either medically unnecessary or did not happen.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed by two former Lifepoint employees under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  The whistleblowers will receive a yet-to-be-determined whistleblower award from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.  DOJ (NDIA)
