TULSA, Okla. – Federal prosecutors have reached a settlement in a lawsuit against an ambulance service with ties to ETMC. The ambulance service was accused of violating anti-kickback statutes with an Oklahoma emergency medical services company. The lawsuit, filed last year, alleges that Paramedics Plus and Emergency Medical Services Authority entered into a $20 million kickback scheme. The Tulsa World reports that the settlement also affects the East Texas Medical Center Regional Healthcare System, an affiliate of Paramedics Plus. Prosecutors said in a February court filing that the parties are “finalizing documents” for the agreement. A memorandum of understanding detailing terms of the agreement has yet to be filed.
