State audit: DHH owes taxpayers millions

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - State auditors say the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars.

Those findings were released Wednesday after an audit found some big oversights with the management of funds.

There were several problems noted in the report, including a failure to get back about $29 dollars from third parties and payments for Medicaid claims.

This is not the first time the agency has been cited by auditors for paperwork problems.
