Woodstock Man Charged with Defrauding Medicaid Program
Dental services billed but never rendered
Baltimore, MD (June 8, 2012) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that Spencer Brown, 51, of Woodstock, was charged by criminal information in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City with one count of Felony Medicaid Fraud for billing the Medicaid Program for services that were never rendered. The charges arise out of claims for dental services submitted by Brown to the Medicaid Program from January 2008 through November 2010.
Arraignment is scheduled for July 24. Felony Medicaid Fraud is punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $100,000 fine. The case was investigated by the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit of the Office of the Attorney General and by the Maryland State Police.
A criminal information charge is merely an accusation of wrongdoing, and a defendant is presumed innocent until the State proves the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
