Fulton County Officials Planning Lawsuit Over Medicaid Payments

The Fulton County Board of Supervisors takes the first step in suing the Fulton Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare to recover past nursing home settlement funds. The Leader Herald reports the board authorized spending $4,000 retaining counsel to recoup Fulton County’s share of “universal settlement” proceeds through formal litigation. The county contents it is entitled to funds related to prior Medicaid claims during its ownership of the 176-bed facility which ended in 2012.
