AG reaches $115K settlement with SUNY

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The University at Buffalo’s Daniel Squire Oral Diagnostic and Treatment Center received Medicaid payments in violation of regulations, according to New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

A settlement was reached with the State University of New York to recover $115,094 for dental services performed from January, 2005 through August 31, 2009.

An audit revealed that the clinic was performing services over two visits that are required to be performed in just one visit. They did this without documenting why they needed two separate visits. The clinic was receiving double reimbursement from Medicaid for the services, according to the attorney general.

“If services are billed in violation of the rules for Medicaid reimbursements, New Yorkers are owed and deserve that money,” Attorney General Schneiderman said. “This settlement demonstrates our commitment to recovering taxpayer dollars misspent through violations of the Medicaid program.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
