Detroit Medical Center’s state payment assertions challenged
Detroit Free Press, February 13, 2008
Michigan's Medicaid director has disputed contentions by the Detroit Medical Center that the state is overpaying doctors at Wayne State University who care for low-income patients. DMC alerted WSU on Feb. 1 that it would begin to withhold $12 million in Medicaid payments it would pass on to WSU for the care of indigent patients. Without the money, WSU may need to cut services or lay off doctors.
