Medicaid Payments to Signature Health Center, LLC (Follow-Up Report)

In audit 2006-S-59, we found that Signature Health Center frequently billed Medicaid for services that were covered (and reimbursed) by Medicare, and as a result, received at least $831,000, and as much as $1,268,000, in Medicaid overpayments. We recommended that these payments be investigated and all overpayments recovered. We also referred the matter to the State Attorney Generalís Office for investigation. When we followed up on this matter, we found that the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General, on behalf of the Department of Health, had engaged a series of audits of Signature Health Center and had collected more than $3.5 million in Medicaid overpayments from the Center. In addition, the State Attorney Generalís Office was also conducting an investigation of the Center.
