Audit questions Wisconsin Medicaid payments, software delay

AP/Chicago Tribune, December 12, 2008
The cost of installing new computer software to operate Wisconsin's Medicaid program was $12 million more than originally estimated and the project ended a year behind schedule, auditors have reported. In a wide-ranging report on the $4.9 billion Medical Assistance program, auditors also identified potentially improper payments totaling $268,000. State Auditor Jan Mueller said her agency looked into the state's Medicaid program because Medicaid has been identified nationally as at high risk for fraud.
