ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Why a Roswell psychiatrist had his since-restored Medicaid funding suspended in 2012 could be the subject of a court-ordered hearing.
A lawyer says the Department of Human Services may appeal, but the Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/1dJF5tm ) reports that a state District judge ruled Wednesday that Dr. Babak Mirin is entitled to have a hearing.
The department in early 2012 suspended the payments to Mirin's New Mexico Psychiatric Services but wouldn't provide details.
An investigation by the attorney general's Medicaid fraud unit continues.
Mirin's lawyer told Judge Raymond Ortiz that Mirin and his network of providers are owed up to $600,000 for services.
