CRAWLEY ex rel. UNITED STATES v. RURAL METRO CORP, et. al.
[scribd id=50483265 key=key-1bjg4f1h5qwad0y04g2w mode=list]
Rural/Metro Corporation is a provider of medical transportation services in approximately 400 communities throughout the United States. According to Rural Metro’s SEC filings, the company had net revenue of over $530,000,000 last year, 42% of which was paid by Medicare and 19% of which was paid by Medicaid. DoJ’s Motion to Partially Intervene comes two days after it was reported that the FBI recently served a search warrant upon Rural Metro’s Louisville, Kentucky office.
