Ambulance operator forced to return millions to Danish region

Bios billed region twice in November last year

Ambulance operator Bios doubled-billed Region Syddanmark in November, and the region wants the  money back.

At issue is an extra 30 million kroner that the Dutch company said it is entitled to under its interpretation of the deal it has with the region.

The parties met last week for a crisis meeting, and it was decided that Bios should repay the money.

Redoing the books
Rikke Vestergaard, a managing director at Region Syddanmark, said an investigation has been launched.

“It is simply not good enough that such a mistake was made in November and it is just now being discovered,” she told DR Nyheder.

“We will now go through the whole process and ensure that it never happens again.”
