Swansea dentist pleads guilty to defrauding Illinois Medicaid of thousands of dollars

A Swansea dentist accused of defrauding Illinois Medicaid of thousands of dollars over a period of several years has pleaded guilty to the scheme.

Yun Sup Kim, 48, of St. Louis, appeared at the federal courthouse in Benton on Thursday to enter his guilty plea on three counts of health care fraud. In the deal, the prosecution agreed to dismiss a wire fraud charge and nine other counts of health care fraud at his sentencing, a news release from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois stated on Friday.

Kim admitted that from August 2014 to December 2017, he repeatedly submitted false bills for cavity fillings and surgical tooth extractions to Illinois Medicaid in connection with his dental practice, Emerald Terrace Dental, which is located at 2 Emerald Terrace in Swansea.
