Ambulette service ripped off Medicaid

From the Daily News:

A QUEENS-BASED transportation company will pay the state back $300,000 in a settlement related to Medicaid overcharges, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Monday.

Apple Transportation of New York, Inc. “frequently” billed Medicaid for ambulette services to transport mental health patients instead of for livery services, which has a lower reimbursement rate, Schneiderman’s office said.

The pricier ambulette services provide personal assistance to the patient, whereas livery service does not.

The improper billings took place between 2004 and 2008, officials said.

great picture of the ambulette with the wheels propping it up like using milk crates for apt. furniture

maybe it's time to reconsider bringing back public flogging,stockades and the tar and feathers for these scumbags and for future scumbags who feel the need to steal from the elderly,handicapped,infirmed and the crucial social programs that are needed in this age where cruelty and immorality is a virtue.
