The HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) has issued a report entitled “Medicaid-Funded Personal Care Services in Excess of 24 Hours per Day.” Based on a sampling of cases in five states, the OIG found 871 instances in which states paid claims for Medicaid reimbursement for personal care services (such as assistance with activities of daily living) in excess of 24 hours per day, and many other cases in which services totaled close to 24 hours a day. The OIG suggested that CMS inform states regarding vulnerabilities in this area, including problems associated with allowing providers to submit such claims in date ranges that include days on which no services were provided.
