Bucks County dentist submits fraudulent claims, faces charges

A Bucks County dentist is facing felony charges after he and his company submitted $1.5 million in fraudulent claims for dental work never performed. 

Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced Wednesday Dr. Ilya Babiner, 63, was charged with Medicaid fraud, theft by deception, tampering with public records and related offenses arising from claims submitted from his dental practice in Feasterville and Philadelphia. 

Agents learned over the past two years Babiner submitted claims for crown restorations and repeated dental services for a high percentage of patients. 

Investigators plan to seek $1.5 million in restitution from Babiner and his practice for the Medicaid fraud.
