A finance employee at North Carolina's Health and Human Services Department who discovered problems in the state's Medicaid disproportionate-share program said he resigned from his position March 15, the Associated Press reported. The department asked Dave Mosley in August 2002 to examine the disproportionate-share program. Mosley's findings prompted a scathing report this week from State Auditor Ralph Campbell, who concluded that the state Medicaid office "ceded control" of the disproportionate-share program to Carolinas HealthCare System, Charlotte, and allowed overpayments and payments to nonqualified facilities. State health officials and hospitals have strongly disagreed with the report's conclusions. Mosley's departure was first reported by The Insider, a state government news service, the AP said. A health department spokeswoman declined to comment on his departure, the AP said. -- by Mary Chris Jaklevic
