The head of the National Council for Behavioral Health has called the state Human Services Department’s actions against 15 behavioral health providers a “witch hunt” that has put the providers in “an impossible position.”

The department in late June announced that an audit by a Boston firm showed $36 million in Medicaid overpayments to the providers during a three-year period. While the department hasn’t released the audit itself, a summary of the audit said “errors and over payments were so widespread that the business and billing practices of every provider [in the audit] warrants careful scrutiny.”
