Two major healthcare contractors who serve the federal government’s Veterans Choice Program received more than $100 million in overpayments during 2016-2017 due to double billing and other mistakes.
This information was discovered during an audit by the VA Office of Inspector General and released on Thursday. The report on the audit said: “Because of ineffective controls, OCC (the VA Office of Community Care) failed to identify improper claims,” AZ Central reported.
