United States Settles False Claims Act Allegations Against Liberty Ambulance For $1.2 Million
Jacksonville, FL - Today, after a multiple-year investigation and the government's intervention into a whistleblower suit in 2015, the United States announces a $1.2 million settlement with Liberty Ambulance. In reaching this settlement, the parties have resolved allegations that, from June 29, 2005, to January 2016, Liberty Ambulance knowingly up-coded claims for life support services from "Basic" to "Advanced" without justification, unnecessarily transported patients, and unnecessarily transported patients to their homes in an emergent fashion.
