EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

The objective of the audit was to determine if payments were made for medical services provided after the recipientsí death. For the period October 1, 1998 through September 30, 2001, we concluded that the State agency had procedures in place to ensure that payments related to such claimed services were recovered.  Accordingly, we determined that there were no reportable weaknesses in this area.
