Xerox Reaches $235M Deal to Settle Medicaid Fraud Claims

AUSTIN, Texas (CN) – Xerox and a former subsidiary agreed Tuesday to pay Texas over $235 million to settle claims they oversaw the payment of fraudulent Medicaid dental claims for over seven years.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said the settlement “represents the largest single resolution in a case filed” by his office regarding Medicaid fraud.

Filed in Travis County Court in 2014, Texas’ lawsuit claimed Xerox and former subsidiary Conduent rubber-stamped a substantial number of children’s dental and orthodontic claims from 2004 to 2012. Xerox was contracted as the state’s Medicaid administrator at the time and processed $1.1 billion in orthodontic claims in total.
