SPRINGFIELD — Illinois and federal authorities are seeking millions of dollars from a Chicago-area company that allegedly filed nearly 60,000 false Medicaid claims since late 2004.
Authorities say Universal Transportation II LLC, which does business as Med Star Medicar, is liable for $6.7 million, which includes the loss from the false claims, as well as damages and penalties.
Representatives of Universal Transportation could not be reached Friday. A phone number listed on the Internet is out of order, and no website could be found for the company, which has an Evanstonaddress, according to court documents. It has not responded to the lawsuit, so it is unclear if it has an attorney.
