As you may know, the County of Rockland is a lead agency in the Verify New York program to identify provider overcharges and misbilling in Medicaid. Even though our County expenses are fixed and predictable, the effect of over-billing is a burden on every taxpayer and thus, must be urgently addressed. The County of Rockland intends to pursue this issue very aggressively until we are satisfied that our taxpayers are paying to providers only what is required under the law and no more. We urge your personal support for continuation of this initiative.
