SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — State Attorney General Gary King has released part of an audit by a Boston company that had led to a shakeup in New Mexico's mental health system, but most of the details are redacted.
The Santa Fe New Mexican says (http://bit.ly/1aYxUJ5) the report confirms a criminal investigation into Medicaid billing fraud is ongoing.
But virtually all specific information about the 15 New Mexico providers audited in search of possible financial fraud is blacked out.
In a state court filing, King says releasing the rest of the information could jeopardize the investigation.
The audit was released Friday in response to a lawsuit filed by the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government.
The New Mexican received a copy in response to a request under the state Inspection of Public Records Act.
