Corrective Steps Announced After Maryland Agency Returned Unused Funds

Health Secretary Joshua Sharfstein told members of the Senate Finance and Budget and Taxation committees he was shocked to hear of such a large expected surplus at the agency that supports services such as residential care, employment, day programs and respite care through a federal Medicaid waiver and state-only funding.
