Feds want New Mexico to repay $16M to child insurance program -- Santa Fe New Mexican

Investigators recommended Tuesday that New Mexico repay the federal government nearly $16 million they say the state should not have received under a health insurance program for low-income children.

The U.S. Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General made the recommendation following a review of enrollment over a five-year period beginning in fiscal year 2009.

According to the findings, New Mexico overstated the number of children in the program when compared to enrollment data maintained by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. -- 12/1/2015
