Investigation of Medicaid Abuses

A number of statutory and regulatory steps were taken during and subsequent to the Commissionís investigations, interim reports and public hearings. These actions included the Legislatureís enactment of a New Jersey Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act, as well as a law increasing maximum penalties for bilking the Medicaid program through over billing and false billing.

Many of the Commissionís recommendations were adopted by the Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services as a result of the SCIís six reports and its public hearings in June 1975 and January, May and October 1976.
