Vermont Municipality Settles Case Involving False Claims
On December 23, 2015, the City of Barre, Vermont (Barre), entered into a $127,669.90 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegation that Barre 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.
