MEDICAID AUDIT SHOWS ADMINISTRATIONS'S HYPOCRISY
Comptroller Dan Hynes applauded the auditor general for his recent hard-hitting review of a state agency's handling of payments for the Medicaid program. Hynes said, "This audit provides more evidence that the administration has been mismanaging the Medicaid system and has been manipulating the payment process."
The audit findings indicate that, among other things, while it took only six days to process healthcare bills, it took an average of 57 days for the agency to submit those same claims for payment to the Comptroller's Office.
"This is appalling and inexcusable." Hynes said. "Healthcare providers have been forced out of business as a result of the ongoing mismanagement of this program."
