Our objective was to determine whether the
State agency claimed allowable Medicaid payments for family preservation
services during State fiscal years (FY) 2001 through 2003 (July 1, 2000–June 30,
2003) in accordance with expenditure limitations contained in the State plan.
The State agency did not assure that its $3,376,139 ($2,030,607 Federal share)
claim was equal to or less than the limit specified in the State plan.
Without such assurance—supported with auditable documentation—we are unable to
express an opinion on the reasonableness of the State agency’s claim for
reimbursement on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Quarterly
Medicaid Statement of Expenditures for the Medical Assistance Program (CMS-64)
reports. The State agency’s lack of internal controls was the cause of its
inability to provide such assurance.
We recommended that the State agency work with CMS to determine the allowability
of the $3,376,139 ($2,030,607 Federal share) for the audit period of State FYs
2001 through 2003. The State agency concurred with our recommendation.
