ABSTRACT
The article reports on the allegation of New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli that Medicaid has inappropriately paid about $3 million in fee-for-service claims for recipients enrolled in three managed care plans. DiNapoli alleged that the incident had occurred because the State Department of Health (DOH) did not update the managed care enrollment information for the recipients. According to DiNapoli, DOH should investigate and recover the inaccurate Medicaid payments.
