Officials in Rockland Question Medicaid Billings of $13 Million - New York Times

Last fall, the state’s Department of Health granted a group of 12 New York counties permission, for the first time, to comb through Medicaid bills filed by doctors, pharmacists, nursing homes, hospitals and others, and look for odd patterns that might signal abuse of the system.

Yesterday, Rockland County officials produced the first results of that new power - saying they had turned up as much as $13 million in improper billing. And that, they said, came after examining just a small part of the program.
