EMPLOYEE TERMINATED FOR VIOLATION OF COMPANY POLICY RELATED TO A MEDICAL FRAUD SCHEME
An Amtrak coach cleaner in Chicago, Illinois, was terminated from employment on October 14, 2020, following her administrative hearing. The former employee participated in a medical fraud scheme in violation of company policies. Our investigation found that the former employee provided a chiropractor based in Dolton, Illinois, with her medical and personally identifiable information and that of her dependents in exchange for cash kickbacks. The chiropractor used the information to fraudulently bill Amtrak’s health insurance plan for services that were not provided.
