3-2-6-2. Thus, as I’ve expressed before to OEMS they are collectively one legal entity – the nonprofit –albeit illegally using two fictitious names.Then there’s this fact: MA DPH has records on file dating back to ’05 that the
Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services
has assigned the BARRE EMERGENCY & RESCUE SQUAD INC. with a CLIAnumber – not any of the fictitious entities. And the address of the nonprofit is correctly recorded as
– not 40 West St. Box 201 the Town of Barre’s municipal building.Given these facts I am requesting to view the following public records that must exist in order for the MADPH to be boldly making certain assertions:1.
The correspondence from the Town of Barre and/or the BARRE EMERGENCY & RESCUESQUAD INC. to OEMS requesting the dba BARRE AMBULANCE SERVICE and OEMS’saffirming correspondence;2.
The correspondence from the Town of Barre and/or the BARRE EMERGENCY & RESCUESQUAD INC. to OEMS requesting the dba BARRE EMS and OEMS’s affirmingcorrespondence;3.
The Town of Barre’s original ambulance license certificate awarded by the MA Department of Public Health;If OEMS cannot provide any of these records - given the well documented history of address and namechanges of this EMS entity - then I’m strongly urging a public correction be made immediately whichwould accurately reflect the BARRE EMERGENCY & RESCUE SQUAD INC. as the Licensee andService Provider. Anything less would be tantamount to fraud.Lastly, Phil, if there’s a way to waive the records fee from past request now on your desk, I’d appreciateit. If any materials could not be located please explain. Recall on February 25
I requested the following:1.
Any correspondence between you and the Town of Barre and/or the Barre Emergency & RescueSquad Inc. in 2012 – Present specific to “cleaning up” Licensee issues ;2.
Town of Barre’s service zone plan (preliminary or approved);3.
The most recent provider contracts on file with the Department between the Town of Barre, theBarre Emergency & Rescue Squad Inc., the Barre Family Health Center, and any elderly care facility in Barre’s designated service zone ;4.
The Town of Barre /Barre Emergency & Rescue Squad Inc.’s 2012 complete license renewalapplication (if applicable) ;In closing, I appreciate your candor and your willingness to listen to my many concerns about thisorganization.
I also sent the following records request to Charles Fullam of the BARRE AMBULANCESERVICE/BARRE EMS/ BARRE EMERGENCY & RESUCE SQUAD INC. last week, too:
