IT giant CSC coughs up $2m after helping New York City bill Medicaid for child therapy rather than insurance cos

Re: Pity they were caught

You're totally misunderstanding the situation. The kids got the therapy whatever happens: CSC was employed to act as NYC's claims agent make sure that private insurers paid the cost if the kid was covered by private insurance. If there wasn't a private insurance policy, then CSC was supposed to bill Medicaid (taxpayers).

However instead of doing what they were supposed to do (hassle insurance companies to get them to pay up and save taxpayers money), CSC decided it would be much easier if they didn't bother themselves too much and billed the lot to the government. Bunch of spankers.
