Grady Health System settles Medicaid overbilling case

Atlanta-based Grady Health System has agreed to pay the state $2.95 million to settle allegations that it inaccurately coded claims and overbilled Medicaid for care provided to patients in the neonatal intensive care unit, according to Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens' office.

"This settlement demonstrates our office's continued commitment to protecting crucial Medicaid dollars from fraud and abuse," said Mr. Olens. "The health of NICU patients is fragile, and we must ensure that every Medicaid dollar is properly spent on their care."

Although Grady Health System has agreed to this settlement, there has been no admission of wrongdoing.
