FL safety-net hospitals claim state Medicaid program underpaid them by $73.3 million

The University of Florida Health Shands Hospital and several other safety-net hospitals in the Sunshine State claim that the state's Medicaid program underpaid them as much as $73.3 million between 2000 and last year, the Gainesville Sun reported. The hospitals also challenge the state's formula for determining reimbursement amounts, particularly hospital expenses that they claim were unfairly subject to depreciation, lowering their payments. A variety of safety-net hospitals began filing individual claims last fall, but recently consolidated them into a single claim. Article
