The State Auditor’s Office (SAO) has released a follow-up report on the audit of the Health and Human Services Commission’s (HHSC) Medicaid managed care rate-setting process. The SAO found that HHSC fully implemented recommendations to 1) better leverage its existing oversight of MCO financial reporting to inform the rate-setting process and 2) enhance communication with state oversight entities, but that HHSC had not fully implemented the recommendation to verify that it obtained all contract team members’ required certifications and disclosures when completing its solicitation review checklist for procurements.
