SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The state of South Dakota has reached a settlement with a Sioux Falls doctor over a Medicaid billing dispute.
Attorney General Marty Jackley says in a statement that Annette Bosworth has agreed to pay about $5,500 in the civil settlement. The state claimed that Bosworth submitted reimbursement claims to Medicaid that contained inaccurate information and that she submitted claims for non-covered services.
Bosworth tells the Argus Leader that the billing accusations are "ludicrous" but that she wants to move on.
The newspaper reports that Bosworth fought for much of last year to keep her medical license. The Medicaid issue was not part of the state licensing board's action against Bosworth but it came up during hearings. Bosworth eventually agreed to certain conditions to keep her license.
