Duplicate Medicaid Payments to Fulton County Ambulance (Follow-Up Report)

In audit 2006-S-30, we examined 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 resulting 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. When we followed up on this matter with officials at the Department of Health, we found that our audit recommendations had either been implemented or were in the process of being implemented.
