COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Monday night, workers at Columbus County's Department of Aging are planning to tell county officials how they will prevent future audits from the state.
The move comes after a self-audit revealed the county owes the state $68,000.
County manager Bill Clark says, the department was getting paid for services it wasn't providing. Now steps are being taken to make sure it doesn't happen again.
"The supervisor of that department which is the home care department is now reviewing all the documentation that matches up with the billing. Before we actually send in the billing," said Clark. He also says, case managers will have their work randomly reviewed. Copyright 2013 WECT. All rights reserved.
