State Withholding Some Provider Medicaid Payments

With the state budget still lacking a plan to raise revenue to underwrite expenses, the Wolf administration is beginning to withhold payments to the state’s creditors.

Including those who provide services to the more than 2.8 million Pennsylvanians enrolled in the state’s Medicaid program.

Last week the Wolf administration announced that it withhold $1.2 billion in Medicaid provider payments.

Unless the problem is resolved, more state payments could be withheld in the coming weeks.
