Digital Healthcare Files to Enjoin Two State of Ohio Departments; Charges Bid-Steering and Breach of Agreement in Program to Control Medicaid Overpayment of Insurance Claims
Date:2/14/2008

CLEVELAND, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today Digital Healthcare Systems filed to enjoin the Ohio Department of Administrative Services (ODAS) and the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services (ODJFS) regarding a state-issued request for services to coordinate benefits (COB), a procedure in health insurance administration that settles which insurers are primarily responsible for a coverage claim.

"Our methodology includes the testing of all 4500 commercial insurers for each claim, filed in real time, to ensure that private insurers pay before Medicare considers a claim," he says.

Erwin explains that ODAS entered into a contract with Digital Healthcare in October of 2001 to participate in the company's National C
