Carroll County will get nearly $50,000 back from Medicaid this year, through two different programs, according to Emergency Medical Services Director Doug Atkisson.
He told the County Council during its June 12 meeting that the Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning will send money to the county that is a cost reimbursement from the 2014 calendar year. After paying $10,900.88 for an intergovernmental transfer, the county will receive $32,671.81 from the program.
The county will also get $36,357.74, also from Medicaid, after an audit was done by Malcon, a consulting firm. The county will pay $9,500 for the audit that looked at various factors, Atkisson said in a phone interview. Those included the number of ambulances, the age of them, the EMS program’s entire budget, the buildings it has, the number of employees and how many runs they make.
Atkisson said the audit was a good deal for the county.
