The North Carolina State Auditor's Office recently reviewed the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
DHHS has been under a microscope for its many issues with the state's food stamp program, Medicaid program and issues with new computer software.
The review listed several findings that showed flaws in each of these areas. DHHS defends this review was conducted for the year ending June 20, 2013, and many of the issues were due to the old operating system.
But as 2 Wants To Know focuses specifically on Medicare, they sited five different errors under the Medicaid Cluster.
- Errors in Provider Billing and Payment Process
- Deficiencies in the Eligibility System Interface Process
- Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital Payments Made Incorrectly
- Deficiencies with program Integrity Functions
- Deficiencies in Provider Enrollment and Termination Processes
To read the explanation of errors, recommendations, and department responses for not only the Medicaid cluster, but also Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Child Care and Development (CCDF) and Disability/SSI programs, read the full audit.
