My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: California
Two years ago had extensive dental work done for the treatment of periodontal disease. Treatment plan and subsequent charges for service submitted to me and to my insurance company indicate that a number of bone grafts were done in order to stabilize loose teeth due to bone loss in my gums. Have since learned that some of the bone grafts in my treatment plan that my insurance company and I paid for were never completed and I was not informed of a change to my treatment plan after the fact. I am now losing a tooth where a graft was supposed to be done. 1) isn't this insurance fraud to charge for a service that was not rendered and 2) is this dental malpractice since I now am losing a tooth due to their failure to execute the plan as agreed?
