Medicaid and human-service providers face an auditing system that is unclear, pedantic, and unjustly punitive.

An auditing system designed to ferret out fraud and waste is being used to penalize clerical errors and minor oversights. These do not violate the fiscal integrity of the Medicaid program or diminish the quality of care, yet they often result in disproportionate penalties to service providers.

In short, current auditing practices are unfair to providers and have led some to reduce or discontinue services. This is not what our fragile healthcare system needs right now.

Please urge Governor Hochul to provide protections from these predatory auditing practices.

The OMIG Reform Bill  (A.7889-A (Gottfried)/S.4486-B (Harckham) was sent up to the Governor on Friday and she has until Wednesday, 12/14/22 to act on the bill!

Please contact the Governor:
