Ambulance Company Owner Charged

October 24, 2018

An ambulance services owner was charged with an 11-count indictment. It alleges that he executed a scheme to obtain hundreds of thousands of dollars by submitting fraudulent claims to Medicare and Medicaid for ambulance services. He instructed staff “to eliminate certain words, such as stand, walk, pivot or wheelchair, from their run reports that could cause denial of a claim for reimbursement” and to write in those reports “that they lifted and assisted the patient even if that statement was not true,” according to the indictment.
