New York State and City to pay record fine to Federal Government. Hey!! This is more "savings" Obama can use to buy even more Government Healthcare.
WASHINGTON, July 21 (UPI) -- New York state and New York City agreed to pay a record $540 million to settle allegations they filed false Medicaid claims, the U.S. Justice Department said.
State and local officials allegedly submitted claims for reimbursement for school-based healthcare services provided to Medicaid-eligible children from 1990 to 2001, the Justice Department said Tuesday in a news release.
The settlement is a record federal recovery for the Medicaid program, Justice Department officials said.
The settlement resolves allegations that the state of New York knowingly failed to provide proper advice on requirements for a service to be eligible for coverage by the Medicaid program and failed to monitor districts and counties for compliance as required, among other things.
