HHS OIG Finds Security Flaws in Maryland's Medicaid System

August 15, 2018 Mayuri Kumar

Maryland's Medicaid system has "numerous significant" security weaknesses that need to be addressed, according to a recent federal watchdog agency review. Earlier audits of other state Medicaid programs have yielded similar results.

While the report released on Tuesday by the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Inspector General did not specify the kinds of vulnerabilities identified, the agency notes Maryland did not adequately secure its Medicaid data and information systems in accordance with federal requirements and guidance.
