Senate panel gets update on Detroit Medical Center-WSU pay dispute
Detroit Free Press, June 6, 2008
A Michigan Senate committee met to hear from both sides in a dispute over physician pay between the Detroit Medical Center and the Wayne State University School of Medicine. In February, DMC presented WSU with a letter saying it would withhold $12 million a year in state Medicaid payments to WSU. DMC says lawyers questioned whether additional reimbursement the state began giving WSU and some other doctors in October for indigent care might violate federal laws that require doctors be paid at fair market value. The state and WSU says its doctors are underpaid despite the reimbursement increases.
