FORBA Pays U.S. $24 Million in Settlement based on Three Qui Tam Lawsuits

The United States and FORBA Holdings LLC agreed on a $24 million settlement to resolve allegations that FORBA caused reimbursement claims for unnecessary dental procedures performed on low-income children to be submitted to Medicaid.

FORBA, a dental management company which provides management and business services to clinics nationwide known as “Small Smiles Centers,” will pay the U.S. and affected states, and will provide information about individual dentists that may have been involved. That investigation is ongoing.

The government’s case was based on three lawsuits filed under the qui tam, or whistleblower, provisions of the False Claims Act. The whistleblowers will share more than $2.4 million of the settlement.

The allegedly medically unnecessary procedures performed on children, included pulpotomies (baby root canals) and placing crowns, among others.
