A dentist from Elizabeth was charged with insurance fraud and theft after investigators said he continued to practice after his license was suspended, the state attorney general's office said today.
State records show that the license belonging to Thomas Wasilko, 55, was suspended in November of 2010, but investigators allege in a criminal complaint that Mr. Wasilko saw patients between Dec. 11, 2010, and April 5, 2011, and submitted more than 100 insurance claims during that time.
They have also accused him of submitting claims for procedures on one patient that were never performed.
Mr. Wasilko is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on July 9. He could not be reached for comment Friday night.
