How Doctors & Hospitals Contribute to Medicare Transportation Fraud

Last month we wrote an article here on our blog explaining how ambulance companies commit Medicare fraud. It outlined the different schemes that some non-emergency companies pull---and what CMS is doing to try to stop them.

Many readers (especially EMS workers) mentioned that they had personally witnessed some of the schemes mentioned in the post.

We thought it would be a good idea to write a follow-up post looking into some of these claims.
