In accordance with an interagency agreement, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) has performed a review of the Health Care Financing Administration's (HCFA) Region X accounts receivable at October 1, 1998 and additional receivable activity for the 6 months ending March 31, 1999. The results of this review will be considered in the preparation of the Fiscal Year (FY) 1999 financial statements for HCFA.

We found that Region X's accounts receivable were overstated by $4.7 million and that financial adjustments and procedural improvements need to be made or else HCFA's FY 1999 financial statements could be misstated
