STATE News:

SANTA FE -- State Auditor Tim Keller responded to the announcement the Attorney General Hector Balderas is suing Presbyterian  over allegations that it falsified deductions and credits through the Medicaid program, thus evading tens of millions in premium taxes and surcharges:

“We are confirming that our office is conducting an ongoing audit of premium tax collection that covers many issues with major New Mexico health insurance providers over multiple years. Our work is independent of the Attorney General’s lawsuit and the findings will be made public when it is complete.”
