OSF HealthCare: ‘Meridian owes OSF millions of dollars’

PEORIA – OSF HealthCare says Meridian owes “millions of dollars” to the corporation. The announcement comes days after OSF’s decision to terminate with Meridian Medicaid and Medicare plans due to provisions they say do not align with the Ministry’s current strategy. On Monday, OSF officials say Meridian owes millions of dollars for outstanding claims for services provided over the past five years. Randy Billings, OSF HealthCare’s senior vice president of population health, says the corporation is concerned for Meridian members, which is why they have contacted the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services and Merician members to make them aware of the situation.
