VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson has filed a civil lawsuit against a dental company in southwest Washington, alleging they collected $1 million in fraudulent Medicaid payments.

The lawsuit filed in Clark County Superior Court Thursday alleges CareOne Dental Corp., its owner Dr. Liem Do and his wife Dr. Phuong-Oanh Tran falsely billed for services not covered by Medicaid.

The suit alleges that about one-fifth of the claims they submitted to Medicaid between January 2011 and June 2015 was fraudulent.

Ferguson says the health care program is intended for families in need.

A message left with Do at his office seeking comment was not immediately returned. It wasn’t immediately clear if Do or his company has a lawyer.

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