Company reimburses Medicaid
JACKSON — The Office of the Attorney General and Jackson Brace and Limb Company has entered into a settlement agreement totaling almost $200,000, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.
The agreement requires Jackson Brace and Limb Company to repay the Division of Medicaid $102,762 for inappropriate claims made from Jan. 2001-Aug. 2008 for orthotic foot/leg braces predominantly prescribed for children. Jackson Brace and Limb Company also agreed to pay a penalty in the amount of $92,485.18 to the Office of the Attorney General.
Hood said, “I’d like to thank Jackson Brace and Limb Company for their cooperation throughout the investigative process. It does not appear that the inappropriate claims were done fraudulently, but rather in error as the services were clearly rendered but wrong codes were used to make the claims, resulting in overpayments for said claims. The company’s willingness to repay the monies mistakenly charged the State is commendable.”
The agreement was reached Aug. 13, and the company had made the full payment as of Aug. 20.
