Dentist accused of bilking national health insurance

Date Posted: 2002-05-03

A dentist with a practice in Gushikawa City was found faking claims to the national health insurance system to get compensation for procedures that were never done. He was also found to have overcharged 673 patients in order to increase the compensation paid by the insurance. All in all he was found to have collected 3.3 million in such charges.

The dentist who has since quit working in his clinic was banished from the Okinawa Social Health Insurance Office's list of approved medical practitioners, in effect making it impossible for him to continue his practice. His clinic has reportedly been taken over by another dentist.
