DHS Acting Commissioner Pam Wheelock spoke during a Aenate hearing about recent events in the Minnesota Department of Human Services at the Minnesota Senate Building on Aug. 13.

Minnesota made improper payments to up to 100 chemical-dependency providers since 2014 and must return the money to Washington after federal officials issued a formal notice to the state Department of Human Services (DHS) in May.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which administers the federal-state Medicaid program, said that Minnesota "must immediately cease" the payments, according to a letter obtained by the Star Tribune.
