Texas Ambulance Company Settles Case Involving False Claims

On December 7, 2015, EMS Mediventure, Inc. (EMS), of Lampasas, Texas, entered into a $92,020 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that EMS submitted claims for basic life support (emergency) and advanced life support (emergency) ambulance transportation claims that did not meet Medicare requirements for emergency transport services and 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 Nicole Caucci, collaborated to achieve this settlement.
