OMAHA, NE -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 08/03/05 -- IntegriGuard, LLC, a national Medicare fraud detection and prevention firm based in Omaha, announced today the appointment of James G. Huse, Jr. to the position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The appointment was effective July 19, 2005.

"I'm excited by the opportunity to use my long standing experience in law enforcement, accountability, and security to help prevent fraud within the Medicare system," said Huse. "IntegriGuard clearly has a stellar track record, and I look forward to leveraging my experience to help grow the company."
