Report: Kansas Medicaid Complaints Discovered in Unchecked Email Inbox

Report: Kansas Medicaid Complaints Found in Unchecked Email Inbox

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A new report says dozens of complaints about Kansas Medicaid fraud went to a government email account that no one checked.  The Kansas City Star reports that the state attorney general released findings today (MON) that show more than 200 emails were left unread.  The attorney general's office found 42 of the unread emails contained at least partially substantiated claims of waste, fraud or abuse that weren't checked out.  The newspaper reports that the issue comes after state lawmakers in 2017 voted to move a long-vacant Medicaid watchdog position from the state health department to the attorney general's office.  From August 2017 to January 2019, emails went to a defunct account that no one monitored.
