Idaho Suspends Medicaid Provider Status to Mental Clinic

 CHUBBUCK, Idaho (AP) — Idaho officials have suspended the Medicaid provider status for an eastern Idaho mental health and developmental therapy clinic. The Idaho State Journal reports that the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare took the action last week against Seasons of Hope following an 18-month investigation.

The agency also says the company must repay $439,000 in overpayments and pay a $110,000 civil penalty. The company serves people in Idaho Falls, American Falls, Blackfoot, Burley, Chubbuck, Preston and Twin Falls.

State officials say the company altered records, misrepresented services and exceeded service limitations. Seasons of Hope owner Heath Sommer says the state acted too abruptly. Health and Welfare spokesman Tom Shanahan says Seasons of Hope has 28 days to respond to the allegations.
