Administrative Law Judge Finds in Favor of Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice Healthcare Client on Billing Code Issue
Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice attorneys successfully represented the nation’s largest provider of maternal-fetal, newborn and pediatric subspecialty services in a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge in Kansas. At the hearing, the State took issue with how several pediatric NICU patients were coded for billing purposes, and sought a refund of nearly $500,000. The Administrative Law Judge found in our client’s favor. The case had far reaching implications for our client because an adverse result could have affected coding all across the United States where our client does business.
