The State Social Services Department is sending letters to daycare centers, telling them the Department has added ten new investigators to its staff, and they’re going to start auditing the ways those centers spend state funds. Department Director Gary Sherman says they’re going to be looking for Medicaid fraud. He says his investigators have closed eight daycare centers in Springfield for alleged fraudulent activities. The case has been given to the federal prosecutor in Springfield. Sherman adds the state will move quickly to close other daycare centers when fraud is found.
