Saltville Man sentenced on Medicare fraud
Former President of Saltville, Virginia’s rescue squad will spend four years in prison and have to repay over 900-thousand-dollars in restitution. 60-year-old Eddie Wayne Louthian was found guilty of fraudulently billing Medicare by faking transport sheets and medical forms in order to get money. Medicare policies say a patient must be bed confined or in such a medical condition that an ambulance in necessary if the ambulance is making a non-emergency transport. The court also forfeited all bank accounts, cars, real estate, and an ambulance service as partial payment of restitution. A second person in the fraud case, Monica Hicks, was also charged in this scheme. (CC)
