NYC comptroller says city losing special ed funds
NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer says the city failed to secure $356 million in federal Medicaid payments for special education services over the last three years.
Stringer says in a report Friday that the city Department of Education must improve its claims process so that it can recoup its spending on Medicaid-eligible services.
Stringer adds that the state and federal governments should cut the red tape that makes it difficult for cities to be reimbursed.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Education says the department believes its corrective action plan along with additional actions taken this year will result in increased Medicaid revenue.
