Alabama Ambulance Provider Settles Case Involving False Claims

On June 28, 2019, Samaritan EMS, Inc. (Samaritan), Union Grove, Alabama, entered into a $942,373.67 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that Samaritan submitted basic and advanced life support ambulance claims where the trips were to destinations for which ambulance services are not covered by Medicare, such as trips to diagnostic and therapeutic sites (and the associated "return" trip was to a residence). Senior Counsels Geoffrey Hymans and Andrea Treese Berlin represented OIG.
