North Carolina announced Dr. Michael Alston Smith pled guilty to drug distribution, health care fraud, and aggravated identity theft in United States District Court in Charlotte. The plea resolves allegations that Dr. Smith, a former Mount Holly family practice physician, illegally distributed controlled substances to female patients in exchange for sex acts. North Carolina also announced settlements with Brooke Stiles, a dentist, and Atlanticare Home Care Agency. The state alleges Stiles billed for services that were not medically necessary, had no supporting clinical documentation, and/or were performed in violation of Medicaid policy. Stiles agreed to repay $100,000 to the Medicaid program. Atlanticare and its owner, Elbert Moore, agreed to return $325,000 to the North Carolina Medicaid Program to resolve allegations that the company allowed improperly qualified aides to serve patients and produced false documents in response to requests for verification.
