Charleston dentist pleads guilty to Medicaid fraud in federal court

A Charleston dentist on Monday pleaded guilty to federal charges that he falsely billed Medicaid for more than $700,000 in dental procedures he did not actually perform on his patients.

Antoine Skaff, 58, pleaded guilty to health care fraud before U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin in the Robert C. Byrd United States Courthouse in Charleston. He also entered into a civil settlement with government agencies wherein he will have to pay $2.2 million, or three times the loss suffered by West Virginia Medicaid, Assistant United States Attorney Clint Carte said in a news release.
