Ruling Highlights Importance of Meticulous Record Keeping

The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has issued a hearing appeal decision in Associated Dental Arts, P.C., finding that the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) correctly sought recovery of $108,585 for improper Medicaid payments to Associated Dental Arts, P.C. 
The case is a comprehensive illustration of the consequences of failing to keep adequate records in Medicaid and of the difficulty in challenging the extrapolation methodology used by OMIG in its audits.
