Ga. Public Health let $12M go uncollected from insurers
Georgia didn’t collect at least $12 million from three insurers for vaccines for children insured in government health programs, Georgia Health News reports. Peach State Health Plan, WellCare and Amerigroup accumulated the debts between January 2007 and early to mid-2009 and still owed the money as recently as two months ago. The debts accrued as the state Division of Public Health sustained millions of dollars of budget cuts due to the souring economy.
