Connecticut dentist pays $82.5K settlement after allegations of overcharging

Connecticut dentist Rawa Hassan, DDS, reached an $82,500 settlement with the state for overcharging dental procedures and filing claims for operations she never performed, according to Westfair.

Dr. Hassan's case began after the Department of Social Services' Office of Quality Assurance found evidence of recurring overcharges to the Connecticut Medical Assistance Program for dental procedures between July 2010 and May 2017 that she did not provide.

State investigators confirmed that Dr. Hassan submitted bills to the state Medicaid program for fillings that were either never performed or significantly less expensive than the claim she recorded. The court found these overcharges, which violate the False Claims Act, amassed to about $6,500.
