Md. Claimed $20.6M In Unallowable Medicaid Costs

ANNAPOLIS — Maryland claimed at least $20.6 million in unallowable Medicaid costs and should pay the money back, a federal audit report released Friday says.

The report by the Office of Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services found Maryland’s health department did not comply with federal and state requirements when it claimed costs for residential habilitation services under its Community Pathways waiver program. Residential habilitation services help people with disabilities live in a community setting. The waiver provides home and community-based services to people with developmental disabilities in group homes, alternative living units or individual family care homes.
