HARRISBURG, PA — Auditor General Eugene DePasquale announced he is launching 10 audits to ensure patients receive the Medicaid services for which taxpayers pay, with a focus on services for older adults and people with intellectual disabilities.
“Vendors hired by the Department of Human Services provide services that cost taxpayers billions of dollars annually,” DePasquale said. “My audits help to make sure that the services being billed to the state are actually provided to patients.”
Ten vendors that provide a variety of medical and human services were notified Feb. 11 that auditors will begin reviewing records.
“Taxpayers have a right to know that the investments they make in helping their most vulnerable neighbors are being used efficiently and effectively,” DePasquale added.
DePasquale said the audits are conducted in cooperation with Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Pat Browne, who sponsored the legislation authorizing these audits.
