Arkansas Ambulance Company Settles Case Involving False Claims

On September 16, 2016, Arkansas Excellent Transport, Inc. (AET), entered into a $35,208.35 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that AET submitted claims to Medicare for emergency ambulance transportation to destinations such as skilled nursing facilities and patient residences that should have been billed at the lower non-emergency rate. OIG's Consolidated Data Analysis Center and Office of Counsel to the Inspector General, represented by Senior Counsel Michael Torrisi and Senior Counsel Andrea Treese Berlin, collaborated to achieve this settlement.
