- New Jersey improperly claimed at least $94.8 million in Medicaid reimbursement claims, according to a recent estimate from HHS’ Office of Inspector General.
- Out of 100 claims from a random sample OIG investigated, 92 did not comply with federal or state requirements. Of the 92 non-compliant claims, 19 contained more than one deficiency, OIG stated.
- “The deficiencies occurred because the state agency did not adequately monitor the partial care services program to ensure that providers complied with these requirements,” OIG stated.
