Amigo Mobility's Jennifer Thieme Kehres was featured on a local news station last night to discuss wasteful Medicare spending in the mobility industry. Earlier this week, FBI agents raided the headquarters of The Scooter Store, a Texas based power wheelchair company. The Scooter Store is being investigated for allegations about false claims submitted to Medicare. The Office of the Inspector General found that The Scooter Store over-billed Medicare by $108 million from 2009-2012.

 

 

Amigo has been fighting to reduce wasteful medical spending for years. While the situation at The Scooter Store is unfortunate for those who may lose their jobs, it is a victory for tax payers and people who need access to proper mobility equipment. Click here or on the photo below to read the WNEM TV5 article.
