Nelson Hardiman LLP successfully represented a client in a Medi-Cal Recoupment litigation. Nelson Hardiman’s client filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction against the California Department of Health Care Services, to prevent the Department from recoupment in excess of $7,000,000 in alleged overpayments made to Nelson Hardiman’s client, in connection with reimbursement rate reductions introduced with the passage of AB 97. In filing its lawsuit, Nelson Hardiman’s client, a national medical supplies company, sought to reduce the amount of the total recoupment and to modify the recoupment process. Nelson Hardiman was able to negotiate a favorable resolution that accommodated its client’s concerns.
