AG settles Medicaid lawsuit with Urbana, IL, clinic

AP/Chicago Tribune, December 5, 2008
The Illinois attorney general's office has announced it has reached a tentative settlement with one of two Champaign County clinics that allegedly denied primary care to new patients covered by Medicaid. The medical clinics agreed to funnel Medicaid patients to expensive emergency rooms for primary care to increase their own payments from the state, Attorney General Lisa Madigan's office said in the antitrust lawsuit. Under the agreement, Carle Clinic Association of Urbana would increase its Medicaid patients by 2,000 to 11,850 over the next three years, Madigan said in a news release.
