VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN) — Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson filed a civil lawsuit against dentists at CareOne Dental Corporation for allegedly collecting $1 million in fraudulent Medicaid payments.

The lawsuit was filed in Clark County Superior Court and accuses owner Dr. Liem Do and his wife, Dr. Phuong-Oanh Tran, of the fraud.

CareOne Dental Corporation has four offices in Washington, including two in Vancouver.

The dentists are accused of billing Medicaid for non-covered services, charged more for services than what they performed and charged for services they didn’t do.

The alleged fraud took place between January 2011 and June 2015, officials said in a release.
