The Texas Health and Human Services Commission Office of Inspector General has published its annual report of Medicaid fraud and abuse recoveries by managed care organizations in the state. Well, it is a year behind. This one is for 2013.
Those expecting huge figures of fraud recoveries will once again be disappointed as in the entire state of Texas, these organizations recovered only $4,688,387.00 out of an HHSC budget of some $23 billion.
2013 was when both former HHSC-OIG Inspector General Doug Wilson and his then deputy for enforcement Jack Stick were mad dogging around the Texas legislature The dental managed care organizations, Dentaquest and MCNA, came up with a total of $224,379.12.
