AIDS Healthcare Foundation accuses L.A. County of ‘retaliatory’ audit
Los Angeles Daily News

Amid an escalating war between the two organizations, the nation’s largest AIDS/HIV care provider is seeking to block Los Angeles County from launching an audit of its finances on Monday.

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation on Thursday asked a federal court to postpone the scheduled audit, which the group called “illegitimate” and “retaliatory.”

The audit had been scheduled after the county concluded that AHF overbilled the Department of Public Health by $1.7 million in fiscal year 2008-09, by charging for costs already covered by Medi-Cal, Medicare, private insurance, grants and fees.
