Review of Iowa Medicaid Payments for Home Health Agency Claims

We estimated that Iowa improperly claimed $303,000 ($199,000 Federal share) for home health agency (HHA) services provided by 190 HHA providers that did not comply with Federal and State requirements. Although the State agency had a process in place to monitor some HHA claims on a postpayment basis, and although Iowa enhanced this process in January 2009, these internal controls and related measures did not prevent the overpayments.
