My husband had some work done by an oral surgeon. The Dr. said he would only charge whatever my husband's insurance paid. The Dr. never did send us a bill. Later on, my husband tried o obtain a copy of his medical file from this Doctor. (My spouse has long-standing medical problems and wanted to get copies of his medical records from all his doctors). The oral surgeon was the only doctor to refuse to release the records. We've now discovered that the oral surgeon billed my husband's insurance company for services that were never performed. (i.e. for teeth that he never extracted and for bone grafts that were never performed). Can my husband sue the oral surgeon for theft of medical benefits or whatever the proper term may be? Thank!

It;'s call insurance fraud. The Attorney General has a whole office for it. Give them a call.
