Three Medicaid dentists who are involved in HHSC-OIG cases will be testifying tomorrow before the Texas Senate Committee on Health and Human Services.
Dr. Chad Evans of Smile Magic from Dallas, Dr. Vivian Teegardin of Harlingen Family Dentistry and Dr. Paul Dunn from Levelland will be giving testimony regarding the lack of effectiveness of the current due process provisions outlined in SB 1803 that was passed and enacted last year. All three are involved in cases relating to OIG investigations.
The Senate committee has charged itself to look into legislation passed last year relating to the implementation of initiatives aimed at reducing fraud, waste, and abuse in Texas Medicaid and other health and human services programs.
Attorney Jason Ray will also be testifying.
