Written Support of Internal Controls Over the eMedNY System

Financial information about New York State’s Medicaid program is maintained on the eMedNY system. The system is operated and maintained by a contractor that is overseen by the Department of Health. Financial information about Medicaid disbursements is reported to the Office of the State Comptroller for inclusion in New York State’s comprehensive annual financial report. We audited the written support for the internal controls over the eMedNY system and found that this written support was adequate.
