More than a dozen New Mexico health centers may be in trouble
Fifteen behavioral health providers in New Mexico, including four agencies in Doña Ana County are in hot water.
An audit shows some of them have been over-billing, not documenting things properly and committing fraud.
This could disrupt drug abuse and suicide counseling, for thousands of patients across the state.
The four agencies in Las Cruces are: Southwest Counseling, Families and Youth Inc., Teambuilders, and Southern New Mexico Human Development.
The state must suspend all medicaid payments to the providers targeted by recent compliance audits while the attorney general's office investigates.
