Audit Finds Vendor Improperly Billed MassHealth Over $16 Million
Our report on MassHealth’s wheelchair-van transportation found that the state’s highest paid service provider – Rite Way, charged MassHealth more than $16 million over a two year period to provide wheelchair-van transportation for members who did not need or did not use wheelchairs. MassHealth payments to Rite Way during 2013 and 2014 totaled almost nine times the payments made to the next highest paid provider. Since 2011, the OSA has identified more than $624 million in unallowable, questionable, or potentially fraudulent spending and savings opportunities within MassHealth.Click here to learn more.
