Medicaid Reimbursement Threatened By Unpaid Taxes
Posted in: Medicare/Medicaid on August 8th, 2012

medicaidThe Social Security Administration must continually work to revamp programs and eliminate wasted money. With Social Security Disability and Medicaid funds threatened by the turbulent economy, the pressure is mounting for the SSA to find better ways to provide services for less.

Collecting On Debts

One area of recent focus is cutting Medicaid reimbursements for providers with delinquent tax payments.  A recent study found that there are some widespread problems of tax evasion by health care providers in three states, costing the government nearly $330 million. The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) reported to Congress that there are nearly 7,000 Medicaid providers are delinquent in their tax payments. These agencies reportedly received $6 billion in Medicaid reimbursement funds since 2009.

The top providers violating their duties to make tax payments were found in Texas, Florida and New York. These Medicaid providers who are found to be behind on their tax debts could face changes to the amount of reimbursement funds they receive. The GAO has recommended that the IRS revisit their collection policies, which could include increased litigation or penalties for non-payment.
