A Sioux City ambulance service provider has agreed to pay $390,000 to resolve allegations about how it submitted claims to federal health care programs.
The U.S. Attorney's Office announced the settlement Friday, saying Siouxland Paramedics will pay the money but won't admit any wrongdoing.
At issue was how Siouxland submitted claims to the Medicare and Medicaid programs for ambulance transports.
Karen Van De Steeg, executive director of the nonprofit that governs Siouxland Paramedics, blamed the problem on a legal interpretation of how the service billed for certain services.
