Records show feds accused NM firms of overbilling Medicaid $16.7M

Newly released documents show the federal government attempted to collect $16.7 million from the state after alleging four New Mexico companies that provide in-home health care services didn’t comply with the rules for submitting Medicaid reimbursement claims.

In June 2012, Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration defended the four home care providers against the Obama administration audits.

Yet in June 2013, her administration cut off Medicaid funding to 15 mental health providers in New Mexico, claiming that an audit had uncovered $36 million in potential Medicaid overbilling and fraud.
