CORRECTION

Posted By on Wed, Jun 25, 2008 at 5:16 PM

An earlier item on a judge's ruling about continued Medicaid payments to a mental health services provider in McGehee was incorrect.

On the jump you'll find the corrected information. Gilead Family Resource Center will continue to receive Medicaid money while the state continues to try to end payment. The state has found more than $800,000 in overbilling there and also raised questions about services.

The order issued by Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Jay Moody today did not fully dissolve the temporary restraining order against the Arkansas Department of Human Services or rule on the significant question of the case -- i.e., whether Gilead can continue to receive Medicaid payments. It simply dismissed one of two DHS divisions from the suit. Gilead will continue to receive Medicaid payments for the time being. DHS lawyers argued on Monday that the court does not have jurisdiction until Gilead completes its administrative appeal through the DHS system, and that Gilead's suit is a violation of the state's sovereign immunity. These substantive issues remain under advisement at Judge Moody's court.

We regret the error.
