DHECC - TP hires clairvoyants

This is pretty amazing.  I was still downloading these reports of the McGladrey audit shortly after they were made public but apparently Times-Pic reporter Jennifer Larino had already read and assessed the whole thing.

I'd like to ask Larino two questions....1. Did you actually read the entire audit?  2.  Did you write this story from personal analysis or primarily from a press release you were given by either the Claims office or one of the PSC attorneys?

For those of you who would like to read the entire thing and do the homework....here they are:

Part 1  

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

Part 5 

More to come but pay particular attention to the "documentation deficiencies" regarding BEL and seafood claims.

Seems to be a large number of "CAO has recently implemented......"

Which report refers to document deficiencies? I think two of your links (1 and 2) are the same report.

1 & 2 look like the same part. What part contains the BEL and Seafood deficiencies?

As the negitive news is released about how the settlement is working correctly.

BP starts spending big bucks buying Google ads on How BP is committed to America.

Get ready for another round of those great commercials.

As for the first round of washed out early reporting claiming victory in the claims processing.

Well I don't think they will last to long after everyone digs into the details.

Thank you for calling out TP. Dead on observation.

Even more interesting since that article essentially became the AP version around the country.

~3.5% of claims analyzed. 50% of which which were for individual losses and failed business claims.

How many claims have actually been paid under the failed business framework? If those claims are mostly incomplete, it's pretty hard to screw up the calculation.

Individual loss claims. With thousands upon thousands of BUSINESS loss claims, ranging from massive multi-facilities to the much spoken about seafood program, how does such a sampling give credibility to the 95.5% accuracy rate as reported?

The easiest claims to calculate AND the rarest of claims to be paid. Just saying.

Clearly the TP "journalist" did not read the McGladrey reports. I see a half billion dollars of claims that were undocumented. Doesn't that mean they should not have been paid? Am I missing something?
