Fairness and transparency- the basis for and the process for OMIG actions. How can health providers understand and plan for OMIG audits, reviews, matches of their activities? Fairness and transparency- the basis for and the process for OMIG actions. How can health providers understand and plan for OMIG audits, reviews, matches of their activities? Compliance mandates-every provider must have “effective” compliance program, including reporting of overpayments Compliance mandates-every provider must have “effective” compliance program, including reporting of overpayments

4 OMIG CHALLENGES LEGISLATIVE CONCERNS: LEGISLATIVE CONCERNS: –REPUBLICAN TASK FORCE STATEMENT, JANUARY 2010-OMIG NEEDS TO INCREASE RECOVERIES FROM FRAUD, WASTE, AND ABUSE “It’s time for a bare-knuckles effort to repossess the potentially billions of state dollars being lost to abuse, fraud, and waste,” Senator George Winner, Elmira. –REPUBLICAN TASK FORCE STATEMENT, JANUARY 2010-OMIG NEEDS TO INCREASE RECOVERIES FROM FRAUD, WASTE, AND ABUSE “It’s time for a bare-knuckles effort to repossess the potentially billions of state dollars being lost to abuse, fraud, and waste,” Senator George Winner, Elmira. –SENATOR Craig Johnson, Glen Cove- Proposes Legislative Commission on Medicaid Fraud Waste and Abuse “to review operations of OMIG.” –Assembly bills on sampling

5 OMIG CHALLENGES OUTSIDE PERCEPTIONS OF NEW YORK MEDICAID HAVE TRAILED THE FACTS: OUTSIDE PERCEPTIONS OF NEW YORK MEDICAID HAVE TRAILED THE FACTS: –“You know, there are estimates that there’s $15 billion worth of fraud in Medicaid a year in New York City alone.” Senator Tom Coburn at yesterday’s Obama Health Summit –FACT:Actual CMS estimate: 1.5% improper payments to New York Medicaid providers in 2008.(Payment Error Rate Measurement program “PERM”) –“The biggest thing on fraud is to have undercover patients so that people know we’re checking on whether or not this is a legitimate bill.” Senator Tom Coburn at Obama Health Summit –FACT: New York has used investigators posing as undercover patients since at least the 1990’s

6 WHY CAN’T NEW YORK GO BACK TO THOSE DAYS BEFORE OMIG WAS CREATED? AUDITS FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES AUDITS FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES NO AUDITS FOR MOST MEDICAID PROVIDERS-HOME HEALTH, PERSONAL CARE, MENTAL HEALTH AND OMRDD PROVIDERS, TBI NO AUDITS FOR MOST MEDICAID PROVIDERS-HOME HEALTH, PERSONAL CARE, MENTAL HEALTH AND OMRDD PROVIDERS, TBI LIMITED AUDITS OF CLINICS AND HOSPITALS LIMITED AUDITS OF CLINICS AND HOSPITALS

7 WHY CAN’T WE GO BACK TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS BEFORE OMIG? “In an audit released last month, the (HHS) inspector general revealed that in New York City schools, 86 percent of the Medicaid claims that were paid from 1993 to 2001 lacked any explanation for why the services had been ordered... In Buffalo and other upstate schools, the auditors concluded that the figure was 56 percent for the same period.”* “In an audit released last month, the (HHS) inspector general revealed that in New York City schools, 86 percent of the Medicaid claims that were paid from 1993 to 2001 lacked any explanation for why the services had been ordered... In Buffalo and other upstate schools, the auditors concluded that the figure was 56 percent for the same period.”* *- Source: New York Times article 2005

8 WHY CAN’T WE GO BACK TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS BEFORE OMIG: 2005 New York Times Series “NEW YORK'S MEDICAID PROGRAM, ONCE A BEACON OF THE GREAT SOCIETY ERA, HAS BECOME SO HUGE, SO COMPLEX AND SO LIGHTLY POLICED THAT IT IS EASILY EXPLOITED” “NEW YORK'S MEDICAID PROGRAM, ONCE A BEACON OF THE GREAT SOCIETY ERA, HAS BECOME SO HUGE, SO COMPLEX AND SO LIGHTLY POLICED THAT IT IS EASILY EXPLOITED”

9 WHY DID THE LEGISLATURE CREATE OMIG? 2005 New York Times Series 2005 New York Times Series “The investigation found audits on Medicaid spending that were brushed aside, and reports on waste that appear to have been shelved.” “The investigation found audits on Medicaid spending that were brushed aside, and reports on waste that appear to have been shelved.” According to the Times, when “asked repeatedly to provide an in-depth explanation of their claim of major savings or for any state records or other documentation to back up the figures, department officials would not supply any.” According to the Times, when “asked repeatedly to provide an in-depth explanation of their claim of major savings or for any state records or other documentation to back up the figures, department officials would not supply any.” Fraud and abuse recoveries as percentage of Medicaid budget- Fraud and abuse recoveries as percentage of Medicaid budget- –2000=.5 % –2003=.3% –2004 <.2% (all as calculated by New York Times)
