Former Hoosier EMS Owner Pleads Guilty in Federal Court


The former owner of a Buffalo-based private ambulance service pleaded guilty last week in federal court to conspiracy to submit fraudulent claims to Medicare. The charges against Roy Dunn, 60, of Winamac, involve ambulance transportation for northwest Indiana Medicare recipients. Court documents filed in November of 2012 indicate Hoosier EMS submitted claims to Medicare between May of 2009 and May of 2012 for reimbursement of more than $2 million worth of services that were never rendered. Dunn’s sentencing is set for May 20 in U.S. District Court.
