DHS improper payments could be up to $28 million

The Department of Human Services (DHS), which runs Minnesota’s Medicaid program, made up to $28.9 million in improper payments to managed care organizations between state fiscal years 2017 and 2019, a new report sent to the Capitol estimates.

DHS uses electronic records and identification to track eligibility and care payments.

More than 47,000 Minnesotans have duplicative personal accounts that could have been created by typos, incomplete existing records, significantly changing information, or an employee creating a new account when an original account already exists.
