AN ACT to amend the public health law and the social  services  law,  in
  relation  to  fair  procedures, practices and standards for actions by
  the office of medicaid inspector general and social services districts

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Section  30 of the public health law, as added by chapter
442 of the laws of 2006, is amended to read as follows:
  S 30. Legislative intent. This title establishes an independent office
of Medicaid inspector general within the department to consolidate staff
and other Medicaid fraud detection, prevention  and  recovery  functions
from the relevant governmental entities into a single office, and grants
such  office  new  powers  and  responsibilities. As such, this title is
intended to create a more efficient and accountable  structure,  dramat-
ically  reorganize  and  streamline the state's process of detecting and
combating Medicaid fraud  and  abuse  and  maximize  the  recoupment  of
improper Medicaid payments.
  THE  LEGISLATURE  RECOGNIZES  THE  NEED  TO BALANCE THE ABILITY OF THE
STATE TO ENSURE THE INTEGRITY OF THE MEDICAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM WITH THE
NEED TO AFFORD DUE PROCESS TO PROVIDERS AND RECIPIENTS WHO ARE  INVESTI-
GATED, AUDITED OR SUBJECT TO OTHER ACTIONS, IN ORDER TO ENSURE THAT SUCH
ACTIONS  ARE  CONDUCTED IN A FAIR AND CONSISTENT MANNER. THE LEGISLATURE
ALSO RECOGNIZES THE NEED FOR ESTABLISHED STATUTORY  STANDARDS  REGARDING
THE CONDUCT OF INVESTIGATIONS, AUDITS AND RECOVERY OF PAYMENTS AND OTHER
ACTIONS.
  S  2.  Section 30-a of the public health law is amended by adding four
new subdivisions 4, 5, 6 and 7 to read as follows:
  4. "PROVIDER" MEANS ANY PERSON OR ENTITY ENROLLED AS A PROVIDER IN THE
MEDICAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
