Local man accused of defrauding Medicaid agrees to pay $375K
By Kevin Murphy For the Times MADISON - A Monroe man who allegedly received $1.539 million in overpayments for transporting Medicaid patients recently agreed to pay $375,000 to settle the False Claims Act lawsuit the U.S. government filed to recover the funds. Anthony R. Anglin's Anglin Transport Services, Inc., only owned a 1994 Dodge van when he submitted 55,778 reimbursement claims for specialized transportation of Medicaid patients between February 2006 and May 2010. The civil suit alleged the company submitted reimbursement claims for Medicaid patients it didn't transport on the date specified or did not have the cot and stretcher equipment for which it billed Medicaid at a higher rate.
