OPWDD Will Be Auditing All OPWDD Waiver Funded Agencies:

16 Mar 2015

As reported at last week’s Inter-Agency Council meeting, OPWDD will be auditing all agencies receiving OPWDD waiver funding. The audits will focus on the 2011 and 2012 years and will utilize protocols and extrapolation methodologies similar to those being utilized by the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General. It was reported that OPWDD will be selecting samples of approximately 100 individuals and will be looking at different services received by the selected individuals. No definitive timeline for these audits was provided.

We recommend that if you have any OPWDD waiver programs you perform a pre-audit to ensure that you understand your exposure when OPWDD comes in.
