"Bonuses" vs. "Compensation": $4.8 Million in Medicaid Funds at UofL Med School in Dispute

State Senator Tim Shaughnessy raised allegations last week that the University of Louisville School of Medicine misused $4.8 million in Medicaid funds. He says the money was used to give bonuses to school doctors. The Attorney General's office says it was simply "physician compensation," but Shaughnessy says the term "bonuses" was used, and that the money was not paid out as part of doctors' regular salaries. He's calling for continued investigation and oversight. Deborah Yetter covered the story for the Courier-Journal, and she joined us Friday on State of the News to fill us in on the disputed funds.
