The District generally claimed reimbursement for services
provided to Hurricane Katrina evacuees in accordance with its approved section
1115 demonstration project. Of the $246,006 claimed, $201,106 was allowable.
However, the District claimed a net total of $44,900 in unallowable
reimbursement for services provided to 18 applicants after their eligibility
periods had expired and to 3 applicants who did not meet eligibility
We recommended that the District refund the $44,900 in unallowable reimbursement and revise its Form CMS-64.9 Waiver reports for Louisiana and Mississippi by the audit adjustment amounts. The District agreed.
