OPINION ISSUED AUGUST 24, 1999
BATRA CARDIOLOGY ASSOCIATES, INC.
DIVISION OF JUVENILE SERVICES
Claimant appeared pro se.
C. Scott Mckinney, Assistant Attorney General, for respondent.
This claim was submitted for decision based upon the
allegations in the Notice of Claim and the respondent's Answer.
Claimant seeks $276.00 for providing medical services to a
juvenile inmate at the Northern Regional Juvenile Detention Center
in Wheeling, a facility of the respondent. The documentation for
these services was not processed for payment within the appropriate
fiscal year; therefore, the claimant has not been paid. In the
Answer, respondent admits the validity of this claim as well as the
amount, and states that there were sufficient funds expired in the
appropriate fiscal year from which the claim could have been paid.
Accordingly, in view of the foregoing, the Court hereby makes
the following award.
Award of $276.00.
