Xerox Part of Texas Medicaid Fraud Investigation
Xerox Corporation and Affiliated Computer Services, Incorporated are being investigated by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission for encouraging the misuse of Texas Medicaid funds in the dental industry, news outlets are reporting.
Medicaid is a government insurance program for lower income people. The companies are suspected to have helped facilitate dentists in charging the state for procedures not covered by the Medicaid program.
Millions of Dollars Misspent
This investigation is part of a wider trend of Medicaid abuse, largely involving dentists and orthodontists in the state of Texas, Reuters reported. This particular case involves millions of dollars of misused funds.
In its defense, Xerox commented that it has not faced similar scrutiny in the other 36 states, and the District of Columbia, that it serves.
