Annual audit finds flaws in what NC paid Medicaid

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -  A state audit has found the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services paid Medicaid health providers too much.
    
The News & Observer of Raleigh report (http://bit.ly/1fORGra ) the annual audit of federally funded programs in the agency found seven problem areas. DHHS says it has corrected or will fix them all.
    
The audit found in a sample of 280 Medicaid claims, 65 of them were paid in error or not properly documented.
    
The audit also found the state's new food stamp software allowed county workers to improperly override the usual six-month time period before benefits must be reconsidered.
    
The report also found problems with vocational rehabilitation payments and grant payments to local mental health offices for substance abuse treatment.
