Compliance in 911 Contracts: Lessons Learned in the Wake of the Largest Ambulance Settlement in U.S. History
In recent weeks, the U.S. Department of Justice announced a $21 million settlement under the Federal False Claims Act - the largest EMS/ambulance payout in FCA history. This case involved contracts for municipal 911 ambulance services in several municipalities across the United States. This PWW Media webinar will dissect this case and expose the lessons that ambulance companies and local government agencies must learn from this hard experience. More importantly, we will present critical strategies for ensuring compliance in 911 contracts between ambulance companies and local governments.

The landmark case involved allegations that a local agency received kickbacks in awarding a contract to a vendor.  Though there were many unique aspects of that EMS system that made the government’s case highly questionable, there are nevertheless many important principles of compliance that must be followed whenever an ambulance company enters into a contract – or even an unwritten arrangement - to provide EMS in a community.  In this webinar, we will discuss the following critical topics:

  • Avoiding inducements in local government contracts
  • Why all EMS systems aren’t created equal
  • How previous OIG guidance on ambulance contracts applies – or doesn’t apply – to your EMS system
  • Whether you should have a written contract, and, if so, what key provisions should be in it
  • How to “follow the money” in municipal EMS and keep it all above board
  • Five things you should never do in a local 911 service contract
