Colo. delays Medicaid payments

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:

Payments to doctors and clinics taking care of the state’s neediest patients are being delayed.

Physicians treating patients with the health-insurance plan for the poor will not receive normally scheduled payments on June 25 or July 2.

Those providers say it’s a hardship for safety-net clinics in particular that rely on public funds.

State officials said they would begin catching up on payments July 9 after a new fiscal year begins.
