ABSTRACT
The article reports on the Medicaid overpayments for mental health services in New York. It cites that an audit released by state comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli shows that a psychiatrist has billed Medicaid for treatments lasting more than 24 hours in a single day and for patients that he never treated. Moreover, the Department of Health (DOH) has stated that it would implement additional controls and apply other strategies to avoid lapses.
