Saltville Rescue Squad Update
The Saltville Rescue Squad says they need cash to hire a lawyer and they canít borrow from banks. They believe itís because the volunteer squad faces charges of health-care fraud. U.S. Magistrate Judge Pamela Meade Sargent has allowed them to withdraw 20-thousand dollars from their frozen bank account to use for legal fees so the squad can have representation by counsel. Federal prosecutors have filed criminal charges against the squad as a corporation and moved to freeze 800-thousand dollars in their bank account that may be a result of health-care fraud. They are accused of sending 2.6-million dollars worth of fraudulent billing slips to insurance companies. Squad employees have pleaded not guilty to those charges. A two week trial is expected and set to begin September tenth. To continue responding to emergency calls the squad is allowed to spend what it makes from donations and billed services and court documents show 33-thousand dollars has been spent on first aid supplies, fuel and payroll since their account was frozen. Saltville officials are considering the local fire department as an option to keep the ambulances available. (bg)
