Health News Florida, August 16, 2010

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration will not investigate politically explosive allegations of wrongdoing against a health-clinic chain founded by Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott. But AHCA has sent the allegations to federal Medicare officials. An AHCA statement released with the documents late Friday afternoon said it had determined that physician Randy Prokes' allegations of overbilling by Solantic dealt primarily with Medicare, not the state Medicaid program. Thus the matter has been turned over to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services "for further review and possible investigation," the statement said.
