State seeks mistaken medicaid funding

    Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) The state wants back close to $15 million from 1,100 health care providers.

    The Anchorage Daily News reported the state made a mistake by continuing to fund Medicaid at a different formula.  The state had cut Medicaid payments by 10 percent and the change was supposed to go into effect in October, 2017.  It wasn't until June that the state realized they hadn't made the cuts.  They are now trying to apply the reduction retroactively.

    The payments for each provider will range from just a few dollars to $1 million.
