JUNEAU — The state of Alaska has requested mediation over what it considers a failure by the vendor Xerox Corp. to address problems with Alaska’s new Medicaid payment system.
Gov. Sean Parnell, in a statement Thursday, said that if mediation doesn’t work, “the state is prepared to pursue all remedies available under the contract, including legal action.”
A state Department of Law spokeswoman said the two sides have begun discussions on how the mediation will proceed.
