GAO Report faults states and contingency-fee Medicaid consultants

From the New York Times:

Two-thirds of the states use consultants to help them get more federal Medicaid money, often by using "questionable billing practices," and then reward those consultants by giving them a share of the money as a contingency fee, Congressional investigators said on Monday.

These consultants are driving up Medicaid costs by recommending financial tactics that violate federal law or policy, the investigators, from the Government Accountability Office, said in a report to Congress.

The full GAO Report is available here.
