Payroll problems were a key highlight of an Illinois Auditor General report about the state’s use of federal dollars. In a report published earlier this week the Auditor says the Illinois Department of Insurance had material weaknesses in substantiating payroll costs claimed for federal reimbursement under the Affordable Care Act exchanges.

The report also says DOI failed to maintain support for certain costs charged to the ACA Exchanges program and failed to establish adequate sub recipient monitoring procedures. The Auditor said multiple times throughout the report covering various agencies that “inadequate documentation … may result in the federal funds being expended for unallowable purposes” and that could lead to the funds being suspended.
