DiNapoli's Office Completes Audit of the Chatham Central School District


New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office completed the audit:  Chatham Central School District -Medicaid Revenue Enhancements.

“As Comptroller, I’m committed to using the audit process to make sure state and local governments run as efficiently as possible,” DiNapoli said.  “These audits are tools governments should use to better protect taxpayer dollars. The Chatham Central School District needs to improve oversight of the Medicaid claims process. Only then can it ensure all eligible services are properly documented and that related claims comply with Medicaid rules.”

DiNapoli’s auditors noted that district officials need to improve the monitoring of the Medicaid claims process to ensure that all eligible services were submitted for reimbursement. As a result, the district could realize revenue enhancements of up to $13,218 in Medicaid reimbursements for Individual Education Plan services and Targeted Case Management reviews by submitting properly documented claims for these services.

Further, DiNapoli’s auditors noted that it is likely that the state would realize revenues of the same amount if the district submitted proper claims for these services.
