"Every dime matters," Human Services Commissioner Jodi Harpstead told state state lawmakers at a Senate hearing last year. The embattled state agency has come under fire for recent breakdowns in regulatory oversight.

The state agency that oversees Minnesota's Medicaid program disclosed that it incorrectly paid up to $28.9 million over three years to managed care organizations and health care providers for tens of thousands of enrollees with duplicate personal accounts.

The state Department of Human Services (DHS) said the overpayments stemmed from gaps in its electronic system for tracking eligibility and enrollment, which led to the creation of multiple personal identification numbers for more than 47,000 Minnesotans.
