St. Louis A federal audit has found the state of Missouri overbilled Medicaid by about $20.5 million.
At issue is billing for administrative costs in schools associated with services for low-income students or those with disabilities.
The audit, released this past week, recommends that Missouri refund the money.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported it’s now up to the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to decide whether the money must be repaid. Ultimately, the issue could be appealed to a federal judge.
