U.S. database for tracking Medicaid frauds falls short, auditor says

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/27/2014 - 12:03
A federal data-sharing system meant to prevent healthcare providers banned from one state's Medicaid program from billing another state's program isn't working as intended, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General. Two years after its creation, the data-sharing system contained no records from 17 states or the District of Columbia of doctors, nurses or other healthcare providers who had been "terminated," or banned from billing Medicaid, for fraud or other offenses, the independent auditor said in a report to be released Thursday. The report also said that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that maintains the data-sharing system, made no effort to require states to report banned providers, though it is legally empowered to do so, and that when states did report them, the data was often unreliable or incomplete. CMS started operating the Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program State Information Sharing System in 2011, as required by the Affordable Care Act.

Boston Marathon report details 'missed opportunities' among law enforcement

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/27/2014 - 11:38

Runners continue to run towards the finish line as an explosion erupts at the finish line of the Boston MarathonBy Peter Cooney WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A congressional report issued on Wednesday on the Boston Marathon bombings urges more cooperation among law enforcement agencies, saying a "greater sharing of information might have altered the course of events." The report by the House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee outlined what it called "missed opportunities" that potentially could have prevented the attack that killed three people and wounded more than 260. Two Chechen brothers who lived in the Boston area, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, are suspected of carrying out the bombings last April 15 at the Boston Marathon. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 23, died after a gunfight with police while he and his brother were trying to flee Boston several days after the attack. The report investigated the U.S. probe of Tamerlan Tsarnaev following a warning to the FBI by Russian authorities in 2011 that he had become radicalized and might return to Russia to join extremist groups there.
