Yaroslav (Steven) Proshak, former owner of Southern California ambulance company ProMed Medical Transportation, was convicted of health care fraud charges in connection with a Medicare fraud scheme of at least $2.4 million. According to the evidence, Proshak and two of his managers conspired to bill Medicare for ambulance transportation services for individuals whom the defendants knew did not need such services. They also instructed EMTs who worked at ProMed to conceal the true medical conditions of patients they were transporting by altering requisite paperwork and creating fraudulent documents to justify the transportation services.
