Duplicate Medicaid Payments to Fulton County Ambulance

We audited selected Medicaid payments to Fulton County Ambulance over a five-year period. We found that the provider was overpaid a total of $122,307 because Medicaid billing guidelines were misinterpreted by the provider and the billing errors were not detected by the State’s automated Medicaid claims processing and payment system. We recommended that the overpayments be recovered and controls be developed for preventing such overpayments in the future.
