After it self-disclosed conduct to OIG, Life Emergency Medical Services, Inc. (Life EMS), Michigan, agreed to pay $38,720.79 for allegedly violating the Civil Monetary Penalties Law. OIG alleged that Life EMS submitted claims to the Federal health care programs for services provided by an emergency medical technician (EMT) whose license had expired. The OIG contends that Life EMS knew or should have known that the EMT’s license was expired and that the claims it presented to Medicare, Medicaid, and TRICARE for the EMT’s services were thus not provided as claimed.
