VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

On Wednesday, April 13, 2016, Dr. Stanley Marable, a dentist from Valdosta, was indicted on 12 counts of Healthcare Fraud in the Middle District of Georgia.

United States Attorney G.F. Peterman, III said the federal charges stem from dental claims submitted to Georgia's Medicaid program with Dr. Marable receiving an alleged over payment totaling nearly $800,000.

The indictment charges Marable with billing for work that was not performed, and in some cases,the patient was not in his office on the dates he said the work was done.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Sonja B. Profit along with Assistant Attorney General Jim Mooney.

The case was investigated by the Georgia Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. Members of Georgia's Department of Community Health -Office of the Inspector General and the Georgia Department of Audits and Accounts also made substantial contributions to the investigation.

 The indictment is only an allegation of criminal conduct. Dr. Marable is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law. If convicted, Dr. Marable faces a potential maximum penalty of 10 years' imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both, on each count.
