LOS LUNAS, N.M. (KRQE) – An organization that helps people with developmental disabilities is going to pay the state a lot of money because of what it didn’t do.

The Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Unit found that the Los Lunas Community Program failed to properly document $500,000 in services over a three year period, raising the question whether services were actually provided.

While the AG’s office later determined it wasn’t a case of Medicaid fraud, they are making them pay back the money in question.

“My Medicaid unit continues to work on assuring that all of the providers that provide services under medicaid, we are looking over shoulder and they are doing everything right,” Attorney General Gary King said.

The state health department says there is a new oversight process to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
