Governor Cuomo Announces Record-Breaking $851 Million in Medicaid Recoveries
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the largest single year of recoveries of taxpayer dollars in the history of the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG). Preliminary calculations show the administration recovered more than $851 million dollars for 2013. This brings the three-year total under Governor Cuomo to more than $1.73 billion recovered from Medicaid providers who inappropriately billed Medicaid and individuals who received services to which they were not entitled. This is a 34 percent increase over the previous three years. OMIG's recoveries are the highest on record for any state Medicaid program integrity unit.
