OPINION ISSUED SEPTEMBER 8, 1999
BLUEFIELD REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER
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 $209.75 for providing medical services to a
juvenile at respondent's facility in Bluefield, Mercer County. The
documentation for these services was not processed for payment
within the appropriate fiscal year; therefore, claimant has not
been paid. In its Answer, respondent admits the validity of the
claim as well as the amount, and states that there were sufficient
funds expired in the appropriate fiscal year from which the
invoices could have been paid.
Accordingly, the Court hereby makes an award to claimant in
the amount of $209.75.
Award of $209.75.
