According to a federal inspector general, the state of Maryland owes the federal government more than $34 million. The general say,” Maryland improperly billed Medicaid for services in hundreds of thousands of cases involving the developmentally disabled.
It was found in a report that the state allowed many who did not qualify for “add-on” services to receive them. Add-on services would be physical therapy and overnight help. This was reported by the Baltimore Sun because of an audit being released Tuesday.
The report covers from 2010 to 2013 and Maryland billed the federal government nearly $582 million.
