“They're going to have people unknown to them that are on a contingency basis auditing them, and they will know going in that it's an entity that's only going to make money if they find something wrong,” Fogarty said.

Fogarty said he hoped that the authority could write its contract with the recovery audit group in such a way that might curb some of these potential negative side effects that the Medicaid providers might experience.

In other action

Other meeting actions included:

• The board voted to increase about 90 reimbursement rates related to Medicaid developmental disability services; Medicaid Advantage home and community-based waiver services; and the Oklahoma Health Care Authority Living Choice services.

• The board went into executive session to discuss hiring a CEO but did not take action.
