NY State’s lack of oversight in Medicaid enrollment resulted in $1.3 Billion wasted over the last 6 years. This audit comes at the same time the NY State Assembly passes a Single payer bill.

President Donald Trump’s administration is asking Congress to cancel $15 billion in unspent government funds, including $7 billion from the Children’s Health Insurance Program, a senior administration official said Monday.
