We paid $925,200 for a $575 million error?

Post by T on Tue Jan 21, 2014 9:51 pm

PORTLAND (AP) — A national health care analyst is questioning a study of Medicaid expansion commissioned by the LePage administration, including what she says is a miscalculation that produced a $575 million error.

Kathy Gifford of Health Management Associates reviewed the (Alexander) study, part of a $925,000 review of Maine's welfare system.

Gifford told the Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/19Kuq16) the report has several shortcomings, including that it apparently used a lower federal reimbursement rate for its calculations than cited, effectively inflating Maine's costs.
