Feds to NJ: Kindly return $50 million in Medicaid payments

Date: November 19, 2012||   0  Comments

Federal officials say New Jersey inappropriately claimed some Medicaid payments totaling more than $100 million for five hospitals that didn’t meet federal requirements.

The claim is cited in a report being issued Monday by the Health and Human Services Department.

The department’s Inspector General office has recommended that New Jersey pay back about $50 million. But New Jersey’s Human Services Department, which administers the Medicaid program, says it should only have to refund about $3.5 million.

The agency says two of the five hospitals cited met the federal requirements during part of the audit period. It also says valid claims for payments to other hospitals in the state exceeded its federal allotment during some of the audit period and should be considered as an offset to the payments in question.
