July Monthly Actions: Agency Took Licensure Action against 10 Providers, 12 Additional Providers Terminated from the Medicaid Program

Tallahassee, Fla.–The Agency for Health Care Administration (Agency) issued final orders to 10 providers for failure to meet licensure requirements during the month of July. The Agency issued seven final orders to deny a license renewal application, two to revoke an existing license, and one that resulted in the provider surrendering their license. Some of these providers were enrolled in the Medicaid program; however, the Agency has terminated or is in the process of terminating their participation in the program.

Twelve additional providers were issued a final order terminating them from participation in the Medicaid program in July. These terminations resulted from sanctions imposed for failing to reimburse Agency within the timeframes established by the Agency, termination from Medicare/Medicaid program, and licensure revocation. These providers also have been reported to the federal government for placement on the federal exclusion list, which prohibits them from participating in Medicaid and Medicare nationwide.
