Grady to repay Georgia $20 million in Medicaid overpayments

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, July 29, 2009

Grady Health System must pay $20 million to Georgia due to Medicaid overpayments made to the center years ago, officials said. Grady CEO Michael Young said the hospital is paying for desperate decisions made by his predecessors. Grady officials in 2004 and 2005 aggressively maximized the amount of Medicaid they received, leaving the current regime to pay back the extra millions, Young said.
