March 03, 2017

The state Department of Health (DOH) could have saved the Medicaid program as much as $146 million over a six-year period if it had helped Medicaid patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) who meet certain eligibility requirements get the Medicare benefits to which they are entitled, according to an auditreleased today by New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.
