Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Targeted

The state Department of Health and Hospitals is launching a new system to root out fraud and abuse in Medicaid. Starting this week, DHH is devoting more time to review Medicaid claims — to help root out fraud and abuse in the system. Secretary Bruce Greenstein says stealing or misusing taxpayer money cannot be tolerated. That’s why DHH is allotting additional review time. However, he says because of that extra time spent reviewing claims, health care provides will be paid one day later than usual — starting this week and continuing through the month of july. Greenstein says the goal is to eventually reach the point where there’s an additional 14-day window for claims reviews.
