In this issue: Medicaid Task Force: Providers Under More Scrutiny; Required Compliance With Red Flags Rule Is Fast Approaching; Health Care Reform Act Provides New Tools to Fight Fraud.

Excerpt from 'Medicaid Task Force: Providers Under More Scrutiny':

New York’s Medicaid program is enormous, and is second in the nation in enrollment, trailing only California. Even faced with increasing budgetary issues, it has been projected that over $52 billion will be spent on Medicaid in New York in the 2010-11 fiscal year.

As a result of the size and complexity of the state’s Medicaid program, the New York State Senate Republican Leader Dean Skelos created a Senate Republican Task Force in early 2010 on Medicaid fraud. At the time, Chair of the Senate Health Committee, Sen. Kemp Hannon, noted that Medicaid fraud is costing taxpayers of the state “billions of dollars.” The mission of the task force was to “investigate whether or not the fraud prevention system is working at an optimal level.” Longer term, the task force focused on how the state can better deliver Medicaid services to the elderly and needy in a way that is more effective for them and the taxpayers.
