State Comptroller DiNapoli Releases State Audits

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli announced today the following audits have been issued:

Department of Health (DOH): Early Assessment of the Encounter Intake System (2015-S-41)
Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) are contractually required to submit encounter transactions to inform DOH about each medical service provided to their enrolled recipients. Auditors found most Medicaid MCOs (42 of 52) were not ready to submit Medicaid encounter data to the new Encounter Intake System (EIS) by the Sept. 2015 implementation date. In response to the audit, DOH officials provided additional guidance to these plans and subsequently reported that the number of Medicaid MCOs ready to submit encounter transactions to the EIS improved from 10 to 43 by Nov. 20, 2015.

Department of Health: Oversight of the Early Intervention Program’s State Fiscal Agent (SFA) (2015-S-22)
DOH generally provides effective oversight of the SFA that helps ensure early intervention (EI) claims are paid in a timely manner and the SFA fulfills contract deliverables related to customer service and data and reporting. Program claims are paid more quickly now than at the onset of the SFA, and DOH is working to resolve older unpaid claims.

Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA): Wage Subsidy and Transitional Employment Programs (2015-S-58)
OTDA provided adequate support and guidance to contractors to assist them in reporting Wage Subsidy Program and Transitional Employment program performance outcomes and preparing vouchers for wage subsidies and achieving milestones. However, OTDA’s system for tracking and monitoring milestones and goal attainment is outdated. Additionally, OTDA’s requirements for documentation are not sufficient to ensure that contractors are only being reimbursed for milestones and goals they have actually attained.
