Maryland Owes Feds $10.9 Million For Medicaid Problems

The federal government has told Maryland to refund $10.9 million in improperly claimed Medicaid payments made to providers of home care to seniors.

An audit by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Inspector General shows 20 percent of a sample of 100 reviewed cases should not have been eligible for payment under the taxpayer-funded federal program that provides health care for low-income Americans. Those cases include personal care aides who weren't qualified to perform services, unapproved or missing care plans and billing for services that should not have been authorized.

The audit covered $67.2 million in payments made between July 2008 and June 2010, 16 percent of which the government now wants back.

Again, wonderful job O'Malley. But I understand. Just keep raising taxes and creating more dumb laws.

This following the Baltimore City jail scandal. Goes to show just how incapable Omalley is.
All the lying he's done to MD residents is coming full circle and biting him in the butt and causing him to be a national spectacle. I think it's called karma and it couldn't have happened to a more deserving person. I hope all our local policticans who think he's so great are proud now. Corrections officials impregnated by immates-yeah that's something to be really proud of happening in your state!
