Hart to Heart Ambulance Services, d/b/a Hart to Heart Transportation Services, has agreed to pay $1.25 million to settle allegations that it defrauded Medicare by submitting claims for medically unnecessary services, violating the False Claims Act.  Allegations were first brought to the government’s attention by former employee, Bryan Arvey, who alleged that from 2010 to 2017, Hart to Heart management pressured employees to falsify claims for non-emergency ambulance transports, such as hospital discharges.  For aiding in the recovery of public funds, Arvey will receive a share of $251,000.  USAO MD
