Air Evac cleared in federal investigation

WEST PLAINS, Mo. (AP) -- Federal investigators have concluded their investigation of a southern Missouri-based air ambulance company, finding no violations.

The West Plains Daily Quill reports that Air Evac Lifeteam CEO Seth Myers provided the newspaper Friday with a June 30 letter from federal officials, saying they had concluded a criminal investigation and found no violations.

Myers said the company was notified Friday that a civil investigation had also been completed and closed with no further action.

The office of Acting U.S. Attorney Matt Whitworth confirms that the civil and criminal investigations are closed.

FBI agents raided Air Evac Lifeteam's offices in May 2007 in an investigation the company said concerned billing and health care compliance.
