David Ross Johnson, DDS, 52, has been charged with one count of racketeering, 20 counts of Medicaid fraud -- false claims, and six counts of healthcare fraud -- false claims. He could serve up to 34 years in prison if convicted on all counts.
Dr. Johnson was placed on the Medicaid exclusion list in 2006 following a Medicaid fraud conviction. The Michigan Attorney General's Office was later notified that he used an eligible dentist's information to bill Medicaid for $1.7 million in claims over a three-year period.
Charges were filed against Dr. Johnson in May, at which point he left the U.S., according to the Michigan Attorney General's Office.
