Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Court of Claims Act. Provides that the Court of Claims has exclusive jurisdiction to hear and determine all quantum meruit claims by medical vendors for medical services rendered by the claimant to a person eligible for medical assistance under programs administered by the Department of Healthcare and Family Services if: (1) the services or goods were provided between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2017; (2) at the time the services or goods were provided, the vendor was certified by Medicaid to provide medical services to persons eligible for medical assistance; (3) the State accepted the services or goods provided; (4) the State has been unjustly enriched or benefited from the services or goods; and (5) the claim was filed with the Court of Claims before January 1, 2019. Provides that the existence of a vendor agreement between a vendor and the State shall not be a bar, defense, or otherwise defeat a quantum meruit claim. Provides that the amount due to a vendor shall not exceed the Medicaid fee for service rates that would have otherwise been paid to the vendor for a valid claim at the time the services were rendered. Makes a corresponding change. Effective immediately.
