Audit finds Maryland Health Benefit Exchange has continued problems in verifying some applicants’ Medicaid eligibility

May 12, 2021

For the second time in three years a state audit of Maryland’s health insurance exchange system found continued problems in the program’s verification of some applicants’ income to determine their eligibility for Medicaid over a three-year period. A 2018 audit of the quasi-governmental agency that oversees the Maryland health exchange found similar problems with Medicaid eligibility screenings over fiscal years 2015 to 2017. The latest review, examining fiscal years 2018 to 2020, found that the Medicaid eligibility process did not take some applicants’ federal tax data into account, limiting it to only state wage information.
