Audrey Ferguson Runs Up $400,000 Medicaid EMS Taxi Fair

DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) – A Live 5 News investigation has uncovered alleged ambulance abuse in Dorchester County. The Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office says 51-year-old Audrey Ferguson of the Dorchester community has called EMS at least 100 times in the last seven years. Investigators say Ferguson was faking illness, just to get a free ride to downtown Charleston. Officials say just about every time she asked to be taken to a hospital. Soon medics saw a disturbing pattern and got suspicious. Ferguson apparently never even went into the hospital to get treated. Officials say what Medicaid doesn’t pay, taxpayers will have foot the rest of the bill, more than $400,000.

Ferguson takes advantage of subsidized EMS taxi service.
