Auditor challenges DHHS NC Tracks explanations

State Auditor Beth Wood sent legislators a letter Thursday saying state Department of Health and Human Services officials offered incomplete information about the Medicaid bill paying system called NC Tracks. Wood referred to a May 22 audit to refute statements from Dr. Aldona Wos, DHHS secretary, and agency IT chief Joe Cooper at an all-day meeting Tuesday on agency issues. Agency officials and legislators spent hours talking about NC Tracks because it’s been a big problem for health care providers. Some have months of bills awaiting payment.
