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.

Most recently serving as the Inspector General of Social Security, Mr. Huse is a former Assistant Director of the United States Secret Service and a former military intelligence officer in the United States Army. He has more than three decades of experience in law enforcement, crisis operations, asset and critical infrastructure protection, and accountability oversight and assurance. Mr. Huse is also recognized as a national expert on identity fraud.

"Jim's depth of law enforcement, intelligence, and security experience will serve IntegriGuard extremely well in building on its successes in preventing and detecting fraud, waste, and abuse in the Medicare Program," said Jo Ellen Hylind Ross, President & CEO of Lumetra, of which IntegriGuard is a wholly owned subsidiary. "His expertise and commitment to integrity will provide the highest level of accountability and dedication to protecting the Medicare Trust Fund," added Ross. "Taxpayers and Medicare beneficiaries could not be more ably served."

Through its Medicare fraud and abuse detection work, IntegriGuard has assisted the Department of Justice (DOJ) in recoveries of more than $1.5 billion, and identified overpayments in excess of $1.7 billion, since its inception in 2003.

"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."

In accepting the CEO role, Mr. Huse has resigned his position on the IntegriGuard Board of Directors, which he has held since 2004.
