Mississippi Ambulance Company Settles Case Involving False Claims
On December 21, 2015, South Central Regional Medical Center (SCRMC), of Laurel, Mississippi, entered into a $318,885.62 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations the SCRMC submitted claims 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 Counsels Geoffrey Hymans and Andrea Treese Berlin, collaborated to achieve this settlement.
