Florida ambulance company reaches $1.2 mln accord in government billing case

A Florida-based ambulance transportation company has agreed to pay $1.2 million to resolve claims that it billed government healthcare programs for transporting patients at an inflated cost or when those services were not medically necessary.

The settlement with Jacksonville-based Liberty Ambulance Service Inc was announced by the U.S. Justice Department on Tuesday and resolved claims first raised in a whistleblower lawsuit that the government later joined. The settlement covers a period from 2005 to 2016 and involved false claims submitted to Medicare, TRICARE, Medicaid and the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.
