Washington AG accuses Vancouver dentists of $2M in Medicaid fraud

Posted: Updated:
VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Two Vancouver dentists are accused of fraudulently collecting one million dollars from Medicaid.

Thursday Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson announced the lawsuit against CareOne Dental Corporation, its owner, Dr. Liem Do, and his wife, Dr. Phuong-Oanh Tran.

CareOne has four offices in Washington, including two in Vancouver.

The lawsuit claims the dentists billed Medicaid for services that aren't covered, more expensive services than they actually did and for services they did not provide.

"Medicaid funds are a precious resource meant for the health care of Washington families in need," Ferguson said. "I will not tolerate anyone defrauding those families and taxpayers, and I'll use my legal authority to hold them accountable."

The attorney general's office also says that the dentists are still in business and working.
