New York Lawmakers cannot agree on False Medicaid Claims

Eight months after promising action against Medicaid fraud, New York lawmakers are deadlocked on details of the proposed law. A story in today’s New York Times describes the impasse, and the possible route to passing the legislation.

According to the Times, Democrats and Republicans cannot agree on two pivotal issues: whether to allow individuals to file whistle-blower lawsuits over abuses, and whether the state’s next governor will get to choose the chief Medicaid enforcement official.

Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and the Democrats who control the Assembly insist that whistle-blower suits would bring many more fraud cases to light. That view is supported by officials from both parties in states that have laws authorizing such suits, and in Congress, which has urged all states to adopt them.

The Republicans who run the State Senate do not want to allow the suits, saying that the Assembly’s proposal would lead to a flood of litigation brought by prospecting lawyers, whom they likened to bounty hunters, and could actually cost the state money.
