New Jersey audits healthcare spending on dependents

AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, February 12, 2009
New Jersey is asking 224,000 public employees to show proof that their dependents are eligible for healthcare benefits. The state Pensions and Benefits Divisions has estimated the state is spending as much as $185 million for coverage for those who don't qualify, and the audit is trying to determine if children under 23 are married or if marriages or civil unions have been dissolved.
