Ambulance firm, PRMC under federal Medicare fraud investigation

Federal authorities are investigating whether a private ambulance company, with Peninsula Regional Medical Center's cooperation, knowingly overbilled Medicare on thousands of nonemergency trips.

The probe stems from a whistleblower's lawsuit alleging that Hart to Heart Transportation Services falsified Medicare claims to make the case that ambulances were necessary to ferry newly-discharged hospital patients.

Dollar amounts of fraudulent claims filed by Hart to Heart were likely "in the millions," court documents say.

Wicomico First Alert Says It Is True

❗️SPECIAL POST❗️
Only because this deserves the attention of the public, I would like to issue a public statement in regards to a hundreds of millions of dollarfraud centered around a scam perpetrated by Peninsula Regional Medical Center and Hart to Heart Ambulance.
You MUST read this article! As a former employee at Hart to Heart, I can confirm EVERY allegation made by Bryan Arvey. Hart to Heart and Peninsula Regional Medical Center did deliberately defraud Medicare and insurance companies on a daily basis. If we arrived to transport a patient, and they were sitting in a chair, we were REQUIRED to ask the hospital staff to put the patient in bed. This happened on EVERY transport. They did not care if the patient was 100% ambulatory — we were INSTRUCTED on how to properly word ambulance reports to insure Medicare would cover the transport. If we didn’t document the way they wanted, they would send the report back to us, and require us to reword it. We were constantly told to document that a patient was not ambulatory, even if they had no limiting conditions. We were taught by our supervisors under what conditions Medicare or insurance pay for a transport, and were required to word our reports as such. Peninsula Regional Medical Center was completely aware of the fraud. I personally made complaints with the EMS Liaison in the Emergency Department. I also made a complaint with Steve Leonard (VP at the time) when I became employed by Peninsula Regional Medical Center.
This fraud doesn’t end with Medicare fraud, but I know private insurance companies and Wicomico Medicaid was also defrauded in quite the same way.
I had no idea this lawsuit was even filed until today. I will be in contact with Bryan Arvey to offer my support, and testimony.

Delaware may let students ‘choose’ their race, gender without parental consent

A proposal that would let students in Delaware as young as 5 choose their own race and gender-identity – without approval from their parents – has sparked a bitter battle in the First State.

On one side are parents who say they want a more welcoming climate for their transgender or non-binary children. On the other side are parents who say the proposal infringes on their basic parental rights.

The Toys R' Us Apocalypse Continues With Another 200 Stores Likely To Close

Toys R' Us' woes continue as it looks like the once mighty toy retailer will be closing another 200 stores in top of the 180 stores that were previously reported to start closing this month.

WSJ reports also suggest that layoffs will be coming for a large number of corporate employees as the retailer continues to struggle after it declared bankruptcy back in September. No word yet on when or which stores will be the target for this next batch of closures, but we will be sure to update this story once that information becomes available.

New Maryland system will allow 911 requests via text messages

Maryland residents who are deaf or have speech disabilities — or anyone with a reason to ask for help silently — could soon use their cellphones to send and receive 911 requests by text.

The state Board of Public Works voted Wednesday to approve a $2.4 million contract that will allow emergency responders across Maryland to receive and respond to 911 texts.

The two-year contract with Annapolis-based TeleCommunications Systems Inc. takes effect March 1. Counties that choose to join the systems could have 911 texts operating as soon as May.

A year after Maryland lawmakers shepherded a beer industry compromise intended to help new breweries expand, the debate is beginning anew this week — and is looking as if it might devolve into a barroom brawl.

The first punches in the beer-fueled legislative fight could come in a House of Delegates committee room on Friday.

“There will be fireworks,” said Kevin Atticks, executive director of the Brewers Association of Maryland.

Comptroller Peter Franchot has rallied the state’s microbreweries and their customers to fight the regulations established last year that they say restrict craft brewers from growing. As the enforcer of state alcohol laws, Franchot is pitching a new set of even more sweeping reforms to remove limits set last year on beer production, taproom sales and distribution to bars and liquor stores.

National Folk Festival Kickoff Celebration


Last night at Salisbury University the kickoff celebration took place and it my friends was amazing. I know there are some that don't look forward to the event and want it to fail for whatever reason, but I am supporting this event to the end so don't look for me to allow your bashing of this event. I will also be advertising it.

I really listen to a wide range of music so going into the folk festival world I wasn't sure what to expect, but I can tell you it has something for everyone. They had a band play last night that played gospel and like a Louisiana band sound that was enjoyed by all. This event does need the public's support to succeed and details will be forthcoming on how you can help.

This event can highlight our City and elevate it to a bigger spotlight if we all pitch in and show the world what we can do in Salisbury and why you should choose us as a place to live and work. The Perdue family was in attendance and will be a big part in helping us succeed. Give this a chance people I'm telling you it could be amazing

OCEAN PINES TOPS LIST OF SAFEST CITIES IN MARYLAND

OCEAN PINES TOPS LIST OF SAFEST CITIES IN MARYLAND

“Our officers are closely tied to their community,” said Ocean Pines Police Chief David Massey. “They take pride in serving our residents 24/7 and keeping our community safe.”
The largest residential community in Worcester County is ranked No. 1 for safety, with 1.56 violent crimes reported last year.
“This is huge! When anyone, anywhere asks the question, ‘What is the safest city in Maryland?’, word is going to get around that the answer is Ocean Pines,” said Ocean Pines General Manager John Bailey. “What great news for our community!”
The study, which was conducted by the National Council for Home Safety and Security, reviewed the most recent FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics along with the population data and internal research. The crime rate study eliminated any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI and removed cities with populations under 10,000.
The remaining cities were ranked based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape and robbery) and property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft and motor vehicle theft) per 1,000 people.
Ocean Pines has the lowest number of violent crimes and property crimes per 1,000 inhabitants, according to the statewide study.
“Our department works closely with our law enforcement partners in Worcester County, and we are constantly looking to share information about criminal activity both inside and outside Ocean Pines,” said Chief Massey.
Ocean Pines has a state-certified, full-service police agency that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All sworn officers attend 23 weeks of intensive police training at the Eastern Shore Criminal Justice Academy in Salisbury. Upon graduation, all officers are certified by the Maryland Police Training Commission.
What makes this designation even cooler is that, in this safest environment, OPA also provides great experiences for our residents and guests. From indoor and outdoor pools, golf, marinas, racquet sports, parks and a plethora of recreation programs – Ocean Pines has it all! Oh yeah, and we’re at the beach,” said Bailey.
