Griffin Davis obtains landmark ruling

Genesis Health Care, Inc. v. Christian Soura (3:14-cv-03449-CMC, December 9, 2015)

Griffin Davis obtained a landmark ruling on behalf of their client Genesis Health Care in an action challenging the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services payment practices to its client. The dispute involved the amount of money owed to Genesis Health Care, which is a federally qualified health care organization, when Genesis treats a patient who is eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare benefits. The United States District Court for the District of South Carolina ruled that Genesis was entitled to receive the higher Medicaid rate, rather than the lower Medicare rate. This issue had not been ruled upon by any courts previously.
