County Seeks Back Medicaid Payments

VERMILION COUNTY -- Even though the Vermilion County nursing home was sold last year the county is still awaiting back medicaid payments from the State.

Officials say at the time of the sale the county was owed between 1.3 and 1.5 million dollars.

Now the county is working with the current owners of the now Garden View Manor Nursing home to get the medicaid payments.

When it is all said and done the county chairman thinks the county could end up with seven-hundred and fifty-thousand dollars in payments to be put in the general fund.

It is unclear when the county will receive the medicare payments but the chairman is hopeful all of the payments will be in by August.
