NY Audit: Veterans not informed on health-care options

ALBANY — Veterans in New York seeking health insurance have been wrongly placed in the state’s Medicaid program rather than federal programs in many cases, an audit Wednesday said.

Auditors found that in 89 percent of the 91 cases reviewed, veterans were placed in Medicaid rather than federal programs managed through veterans’ affairs agencies.
