The state could be forced to cough up nearly $61 million. The federal government says the state overcharged it for talking care of developmental disabled people.
Officials say state operated facilities, which cared for those patients, charged the government for repairs, maintenance, utility bills and other property related costs.
Federal investigators say those fees were included in the Medicaid payment rates. Auditors are now recommending the state health department repay $60.8 million.
