Audit finds Missouri overbilled Medicaid

March 28, 2010


— 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.
