Embattled women's clinic suspected of defrauding Medicaid

The Salt Lake Tribune, September 30, 2010

A West Valley City women’s clinic that recently closed after an employee was arrested for unlawfully practicing medicine is now suspected of defrauding Medicaid of more than $1 million.

During the past five years, Westview Women’s Center and an affiliated billing center, All Medical Billing Inc., coached thousands of low-income women on how to use fake Social Security numbers and other fabricated information to apply for Baby Your Baby, a prenatal program funded by Medicaid, authorities allege.

The clinic then billed the program for care that wasn’t medically necessary, according to court documents unsealed on Wednesday.
