Lawsuit Says Service Bilked Millions from Government

The cash-strapped city of Dallas could owe the federal government $40 million or more if a whistle-blower lawsuit’s allegations of fraud involving billing for ambulance services prove true.

While the city says the specific amount it may owe the government has not been determined, it acknowledges that it is “fully cooperating” with federal authorities and will “move forward aggressively” to make sure any overpayment amounts are repaid.
