EMS Chief Dickerson email to the BoCC admitting to the illegal billing practices.
Letter from the FAA, dated May 4, 2012, to Intermedix (Lee County EMS billing vendor) providing legal interpretation that accepting payment for any flight requires operations under at least a part 119 certificate. This clearly outlined that charging for any flight under part 91 was not legal. Intermedix requested this interpretation on January 23, 2012.

Formal policy sent out 8/13 directing which helicopter to take on which flight. Shows EMS managers attempted to charge Lee County taxpayers more for transport than non-residences to cover up the illegal billing!
