Utah Ambulance Company Settles Case Involving False Claims
On March 11, 2016, Ogden City Corporation (Ogden), of Ogden, Utah, entered into a $363,159.38 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that Ogden 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 (upcoding). 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.
