The Next Phase in Medicaid Program Integrity

Rockefeller Institute Forum, June 8, 2009

New York State Medicaid Inspector General James G. Sheehan discussed the opportunities for improving the government-sponsored health program through mining data now gathered at state and federal levels. Examining such data provides more chances to detect financial fraud and abuse in the Medicaid system — thereby cutting costs — as well as opportunities to improve medical results for patients, he said. New York’s integrated system of Medicaid data is the best in the nation, and could act as a model for those in the federal government and other states, Sheehan suggested.
