LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- A judge rules Monday a temporary suspension of Medicaid payments to Preferred Family Health, Inc. should remain in effect.
Preferred Family Health filed the appeal earlier this month after they were suspended from the Medicaid program by the Office of Medicaid Inspector General.
Robin Raveendran, the company’s former Medicaid integrity director, was arrested on June 28, and faces a Medicaid Fraud charge.
Preferred Family Health sent a note to employees earlier this month that said if they cannot participate in Medicaid in Arkansas, they may close all their locations in the state.
A spokesperson with Preferred Family Health said, “At this time, Preferred Family Healthcare is reviewing the decision and its impact.”
