Division of Medical Assistance http://wfae.org en Audit Finds N.C. Medicaid Program Is Wasting Money http://wfae.org/post/audit-finds-nc-medicaid-program-wasting-money <p>An independent audit found North Carolina's Medicaid program has been horribly managed in terms of administrative costs and budgeting.&nbsp; State Auditor Beth Wood released the report Thursday, which examined how the Department of Health and Human Services has overseen Medicaid the last three years.</p><p>Let's start with some perspective on just how big the state's Medicaid program is. More than 1.5 million North Carolinians use it, and it costs the state about $36 million a day.</p> Fri, 01 Feb 2013 14:39:23 +0000 Michael Tomsic 20545 at http://wfae.org
