New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced that Apple Transportation of New York, Inc.
will pay $300,000 to settle claims it overbilled Medicaid for transportation services. As part of a settlement agreement, Apple Transportation admitted that between January 1, 2004 and October 30, 2008, it frequently billed Medicaid for ambulette services even though no personal assistance was provided to Medicaid recipients. As a result, Apple was paid by Medicaid for ambulette services at rates that were higher than the applicable livery rates. NY
