This final audit report points out that the State agency improperly claimed $2,008,798 (Federal share) for Medicaid payments made to eight free-standing inpatient alcoholism providers during the period April 1, 1987 to October 31, 1990. The claims were improper because the services provided were not covered by the Medicaid program during the above period. The State and Health Care Financing Administration Region II officials concurred with our recommended financial adjustment for $2,008,798.
