Flower Hospital 'fully operational' after threat to Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

An action plan which willallow ProMedica Flower Hospital to continue receiving Medicaid and Medicare paymentswas approved by the federal government on Monday. The hospital's president commentedon the matter Tuesday.

The hospital's leader is stressingthat it will not lose Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements, and that nothingwill change for patients.

Flower had been cited withan "immediate jeopardy" by the United States Department of Health and HumanServices. Neither the hospital nor the Department of HHS would say exactly whatled to the "jeopardy," but did say it stemmed from an incident in thepsychiatric ward at Flower. That "jeopardy" meant the hospital could lose itsability to accept payments from Medicaid and Medicare if it did not submit aplan to remedy the issue by May 9. The hospital submitted that plan and had itapproved on Monday.

"We're fully operational,and we can see patients and provide all the services that we need to here onour campus," said Flower Hospital President Allan Sattler.

ProMedica officials saidthey could not go into detail about the newly approved plan.
