Texas adds Xerox to dental Medicaid probe

Xerox and one of its subsidiaries that contracted with the state of Texas to process dental claims are being investigated by authorities as part of the state's Medicaid overbilling probe, according to news reports.

Affiliated Computer Services, which is owned by Xerox, did not dedicate sufficient trained staff to audit the Medicaid requests, which enabled dentists to get paid for procedures not covered by the program, according to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.

The company is under a contract with Texas and other states to process forms submitted by dentists and determine whether procedures are covered by Medicaid.

Xerox helps administer Medicaid programs in 36 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, and processes $54 billion in annual Medicaid spending, according to the article.
