Dental insurance fraud
1 attorney answer
Hello, in my opinion, you have two options: One is to do nothing and hope that this dentist never gets caught committing insurance fraud. You did not state what your position is, whether it is medical billing or a dental assistant, but If this dentist does get caught, you are correct in assuming that you could be held accountable as someone who assisted in the fraud. Your second option, and in my opinion is the better one, is to report your suspicions to the Fraud Department of the Delaware Insurance Commissioner's Office. Here is their contact information: Call 1-800-632-5154 toll-free in Delaware or (302) 674-7350; send an email to [email protected]; or mail a report to Fraud Prevention, 841 Silver Lake Blvd., Dover, DE 19904. If you are afraid of losing your job, you should be more afraid of being held accountable as someone who assisted in a fraudulent scheme. This could follow you for the rest of your career, especially if the matter becomes criminal.
