This final letter report provides you with the results of our audit "Medicaid Transportation Claims." The objective of our audit was to determine the allowability of paid Medicaid claims for non emergency transportation trips which could not be matched to a claim for medical service or product on the same date.
Although your Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP) initially identified non-emergency transportation claims without related medical services, amounting to over $1.3 million during fiscal year 1999, a subsequent refinement to this analysis reduced the potential questionable claims to $157,948 for the quarter ending September 30, 1998. Our sample review noted reasonable explanations for about 35 percent of these claims and documentation problems for the remaining 65 percent of the transportation claims.
