OIG Excludes Indiana Ambulance Provider for Material Breach

On April 3, 2019, OIG excluded Tri-County Ambulance (Tri-County), for a period of five years based on a material breach of its Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA). On November 9, 2018, OIG issued a letter demanding stipulated penalties of $25,000 based on Tri-County's failure to submit its Annual Report. After Tri-County failed to pay the stipulated penalties and cure the breach or request a hearing by an HHS Administrative Law Judge, OIG issued a notice of material breach and intent to exclude in January 2019. Under the terms of the CIA, Tri-County had 25 days to request a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge. Tri-County did not request a hearing. OIG excluded Tri-County effective April 3, 2019. Senior Counsel Sarah Kessler represented OIG.
