Ohio’s Medicaid system suffers from high payment error rates and problems determining eligibility, among many issues the state Medicaid director blamed on the past administration. Other problems identified by Medicaid Director Maureen Corcoran include incorrect renewal dates, privacy breaches and incorrectly linking newborns to people who weren’t are their actual parents. In one case, a baby was linked to an 11-year-old child. Corcoran said in a memo to Gov. Mike DeWine she inherited “a mess” from the previous administration, and failure to fix the problems could cost Ohio billions in federal penalties.
