"A former Massachusetts dentist is accused of putting paper clips in patients' mouths during root canals, then billing Medicaid for the stainless steel posts he should have used.
The state attorney general announced Tuesday that a grand jury indicted former Fall River dentist Michael Clair last week. The charges include assault and battery, larceny, submitting false claims to Medicaid, and illegally prescribing drugs." (source)
I believe that I read doctors receive only 50¢ on the dollar for Medicaid claims and with 32 million more people flooding the system...how will they maintain their practice? By using paperclips and charging for SS rods. Welcome to America 2014.
