Follow-Up Audit of the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program in Connecticut

June 12, 2008 | Audit A-01-08-00002

Executive Summary

In a follow-up audit of Connecticut's Medicaid drug rebate program, we found that the State had not implemented the recommendation from our prior audit to establish procedures to provide accurate pending rebate amounts and properly present an aging schedule of its drug rebate receivables in its quarterly reports to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Manufacturers may make their outpatient drugs eligible for Federal Medicaid funding by entering into a rebate agreement with CMS and paying quarterly rebates to the States. We also found that the State had established controls over collecting rebates for single-source drugs administered by physicians.

We reiterated our recommendation that the State establish procedures to provide accurate pending rebate amounts and properly present an aging schedule of its drug rebate receivables in its quarterly reports to CMS. The State agreed with our finding and recommendation.
