The Medical Center of Central Georgia, Inc. (d/b/a The Medical Center, Navicent Health) agreed to pay roughly $2.6 million to resolve allegations it violated the False Claims Act by submitting bills for ambulance transports that were either inflated or medically unnecessary.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by former Navicent paramedic Andre Valentine.  He will receive a yet-to-be-determined whistleblower award from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.  DOJ (MDGA)
