Officials hope to fill Mayo Clinic void

Posted on October 14th, 2009 by Kelley Luckstein

A top Nebraska Medicaid official hopes to convince the Mayo Clinic to keep treating Nebraska Medicaid patients beyond year's end…

 

Clinic spokeswoman Shelly Plutowski cited business reasons for the decision.

 

Mayo's three clinics - in Rochester, Florida and Arizona - provided more than $500 million worth of services to Medicaid patients last year and lost more than $100 million on those services.

 

"There are difficult decisions for us to make," Plutowski said. "This isn't something we would prefer to do."
