OPINION ISSUED JANUARY 7, 2000
THOMAS MEMORIAL HOSPITAL
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 respondent's Answer.
Claimant seeks $10.20 for providing medical services to a
juvenile at the South Central Regional Juvenile Detention Center,
a facility of respondent in Dunbar, Kanawha 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 makes an award to claimant in the
amount of $10.20.
Award of $10.20.
