Medicaid Inspector General to Oversee Audits of New York State Agency

The state Office of the Medicaid Inspector General will take over and move faster on the auditing of Medicaid-funded state institutions and programs for the developmentally disabled in light of a Poughkeepsie Journal investigation, the inspector general said.
Those functions have traditionally been carried out by the agency that runs the programs, the Office For People With Developmental Disabilities, which operates nine institutions and oversees 7,500 private and state-run group homes.
Herm Hill, communications director for the disability agency, said in response, "We will work closely with [the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General] in this effort."
