Counties take legal action over Medicaid law

By

The Florida Association of Counties has joined 47 counties in a lawsuit against a new Medicaid billing law. FAC says the suit claims the new Medicaid Billing law is unconstitutional because it violates provisions of the unfunded mandate section of the constitution. FAC Communications Director Cragin Mosteller says Alachua County will see a very high rate of unpaid bills it will have to cover.
