The state Attorney General's Office has reached a settlement with an Orange County ambulance company that illegally billed patients for emergency medical services.
As part of the agreement, New Windsor-based Mobile Life Support Services will pay full restitution plus interest to all patients who paid for the illegal charges since June 2016.
The company will also pay a $100,000 penalty.
The AG's office started the investigation after patients complained about their health plans billing them for the difference between Mobile Life's charge and the payment - that's illegal under state insurance law.
A company spokesperson says the issue was due to inadvertent errors on their part and was not a deliberate act to deceive any patient or to engage in fraudulent billing practices.
Patients who were affected will be compensated for any funds they were inappropriately invoiced.
