OIG Reaches $3.75 Million Settlement with Carousel
AUSTIN - Carousel Pediatrics has agreed to repay the state $3.75 million after an investigation by the Health and Human Services Commission Office of Inspector General (OIG) found a pattern of billing errors. Carousel Pediatrics currently provides primary care for more than 25,000 Texas children. OIG's medical reviews demonstrated the quality of care Carousel provided was often similar to other Medicaid providers, but its billing practices meant that it billed the state too much for those services.
