Texas announced a settlement with MB2 Dental Solutions (MB2) and 21 affiliated pediatric dental practices. MB2 agreed to pay the United States and the State of Texas $8.45 million for alleged violations of the federal False Claims Act (FCA) and the Texas Medicaid Fraud Prevention Act (TMFPA). Three lawsuits were resolved with this settlement alleging that MB2 knowingly submitted claims for children’s dental services which were either not performed or were provided after false identification was used. The claims also involved illegal kickbacks to Medicaid beneficiaries and their families, marketers and marketing entities. The allegations were brought to the attention of the U.S. and Texas authorities by whistleblowers who filed one lawsuit under the FCA and two under the TMFPA. TX
