Illinois spent $4.6 million in Medicaid payments on behalf of deceased beneficiaries.
So where’d that money go?
(From Illinois Policy)
From October 2015 to September 2017, Illinois made 84 insurance payments for 80 deceased individuals that the state did not recover, according to OIG’s audit. The state now owes the federal government $3.2 million – the portion of the $4.6 million Illinois received from the federal health department.
