A popular transport company for the elderly is reportedly under investigation for Medicaid fraud and has been shut down for the alleged violations.
Advanced Care Transport, based in Plymouth, was allegedly investigated by the Indiana Attorney General’s office last month and, as of Saturday, the business was closed.
On Aug. 30, StaceyPageOnline.com received an email from a reader noting her husband, a driver for A.C.T., was attempting to begin his route for the day when an A.G. investigator told him the business was being investigated.
A.C.T. was a common service for Kosciusko County residents as the drivers often transported patients in local nursing homes to their medical appointments.
According to the company’s website, A.C.T. is a “family owned and operated company specializing in non-emergency medical transportation catering for the needs of seniors in residential and nursing homes, assisted living accommodations and home-based individuals, particularly the physically disadvantaged.
A.C.T. drivers and vehicles were also available for special events, church functions, veterans associations and special needs activities.
Bryan Corbin of the Indiana Attorney General’s office responded to our inquiry for information noting, “We can neither confirm, deny nor acknowledge the existence of any investigations. We refer you instead to the United States Attorney’s Office in South Bend.”
StaceyPageOnline.com contacted the U.S. Attorney’s Office and is currently waiting for a response.
