          reimbursement of county payments for medical assistance  fraud,  waste

          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 368-a of the social  services  law
     2  is amended by adding a new paragraph (aa) to read as follows:
     3    (aa)  (i)  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the full amount
     4  expended by the local social services district  for  medical  assistance
     5  fraud,  waste  and abuse investigations via the use of data mining soft-
     6  ware shall be reimbursed by the  state  if  the  county  has  previously
     7  purchased or intends to purchase such software. For the purposes of this
     8  paragraph, "data mining software" shall mean a database application that
     9  utilizes  advanced  data searching capabilities and statistical analyses
    10  to discover patterns and correlations in the use and  abuse  of  medical
    11  assistance  practices.  Any  county  that  has previously purchased such
    12  software must supply adequate  documentation,  including  any  receipts,
    13  that details such purchase. The state shall disburse grants, when appli-
    14  cable, from the general fund for this purpose.
    15    (ii)  The  commissioner of health may develop rules and regulations as
    16  necessary to carry out the provisions of this paragraph.
    17    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
