Pines Bach Wins Court Order for Supplemental Relief for Medicaid Providers

Professional Homecare Providers garnered another key victory in Waukesha County Court on February 14, following up on that court's ruling last September that the Department of Health Services may only recoup past payments to Medicaid providers if the Department cannot verify that the services were provided or if the Department determines that the amount paid was inaccurate or inappropriate for the services. On the Professional Homecare Providers' motion, brought by Attorney Diane Welsh, the court determined that the Department has failed to comply with the September order, violating its order and the injunction it imposed by continuing to pursue recoupments against individual nurses for prohibited reasons. As a result, the court issued a warning to the Department and ordered it to pay the providers' fees and costs for bringing the motion. Attorneys Susan Crawford and Aaron Dumas assisted in obtaining the supplemental relief sought by the Plaintiffs.

Welsh Wins Important Rulings for Medicaid Providers

Waukesha County Court Protects Health Care Providers' Medicaid Payments from Unfair Government Recoupment Efforts

On August 12, 2016, the Waukesha County Circuit Court ruled that the Wisconsin Department of Health Services ("DHS") exceeds its authority when it applies a perfection standard, then uses that standard as a basis for recouping Medicaid payments that were made for necessary services provided to Medicaid enrollees. The Court declared that DHS's authority under Wis. Stat. § 49.45(3)(f) is limited to circumstances where either: 1) DHS is unable to verify from the provider's records that services were actually provided; or 2) the payment was inaccurate or inappropriate for the service provided (such as a mathematical error or duplicative charge).
