Murfreesboro dentist Richard Schott has been sentenced to 33 months in federal prison for defrauding TennCare and other commercial payers more than $930,000 through his practice, Dental Excellence, the Nashville Post reports. Scott pled guilty to seven counts of health care fraud last November for improper billing, falsifying dates of service to appear to comply with care regulations, upcoming claims and continuing to submit false claims even after several external audits and warnings. As part of his sentencing, the court ordered Schott to pay $956,448 in restitution to the state Medicaid program.
