Developmentally Disabled Service Group Sues State

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A company that provides services to Idaho’s developmentally disabled population is suing the state for more than $12 million to offset underpayments alleged over the last five years. The lawsuit was filed in state court by Inclusion Inc. against the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. It also comes in the wake of a separate 2011 federal court ruling that forced the state to begin paying higher Medicaid reimbursement rates. Inclusion was one of several in-home care providers that won the higher reimbursement rates in that case. The Idaho Business Review (http://bit.ly/WuZ0B8) reports the latest suit is the company’s attempt to collect the difference between what the federal judge ruled the providers were owed compared to what they were paid. Agency officials declined to comment on the case.
