FOX 5 I-Team investigates

Federal agents raid Atlanta ambulance provider

Posted: Updated:

Federal agents seized documents from a local ambulance provider that the FOX 5 I-Team has previously reported on.

The company is Jackson EMS, one of the many ambulance services that have popped up in Georgia recently to transport dialysis patients.

Agents from the Medicare Office of Inspector General, along with the FBI, executed a search warrant at the home of Marcus Jackson, the company's owner.

They won't say what records they seized, but the raid comes on the heels of a complaint from a Jackson EMT. She accused the company of forcing workers to change their reports to justify billing Medicare for patients who didn't really need such an expensive ride to a dialysis clinic.

Medicare pays $5 billion a year
to ambulance companies for trips that are not emergencies.

FOX 5 I-Team reporter Randy Travis has the story!
