Division of Audit

The Division of Audit is part of the Financial Management Services within the Department of Health and Human Services.  Financial Management is responsible for managing the resources entrusted to the Department in an efficient and effective manner. 

The Division of Audit contributes to this goal by performing compliance and cost settlement audits on approximately 600 different provider organizations and/or community agencies which receive over $1.5 billion of State and Federal funds through either the MaineCare program or from contracted services.

The Division of Audit is comprised of five units:

  • MaineCare Audit – this unit conducts cost settlement reviews on MaineCare providers receiving reimbursement on a cost basis such as Nursing Facilities, Hospitals, Residential Care Facilities, Private Non-Medical Institutions and Intermediate Care Facilities for the Mentally Retarded (ICF/MR)
  • Social Service Audit – this unit conducts desk reviews on A-133 audits submitted by community agencies as well as close-out reviews on all Department contracts to sub-recipients
  • Internal Audit – this unit oversees all auditing of DHHS conducted by external agencies, assures corrective action plans are implemented and meeting their objective and conducts specialized audits as needed
  • Program Integrity – this unit oversees payments under MaineCare for non-cost settled programs, conducts post payment reviews to prevent/limit fraud abuse and waste
  • Rate Setting – this unit is responsible for overseeing all rate setting for the Department
