DoJ Moves to Join Frohsin & Barger Qui Tam Suit Against National Ambulance Company Rural Metro

March 10, 2011

Today, DoJ moved to intervene in a qui tam whistleblower lawsuit against Rural Metro Corporation brought by Frohsin & Barger on behalf of former employee Carl Crawley.  The suit alleges that Rural Metro submitted false claims to Medicare and Medicaid for dialysis transport services:

CRAWLEY ex rel. UNITED STATES v. RURAL METRO CORP, et. al.

Rural/Metro Corporation is a provider of medical transportation services in approximately 400 communities throughout the United States. According to Rural Metro’s SEC filings, the company had net revenue of over $530,000,000 last year, 42% of which was paid by Medicare and 19% of which was paid by Medicaid.  DoJ’s Motion to Partially Intervene comes two days after it was reported that the FBI recently served a search warrant upon Rural Metro’s Louisville, Kentucky office.
