Computer glitch blamed for Wisconsin Medicare payment error

AP/Chicago Tribune, March 19, 2009
Thousands of Wisconsin Medicare recipients were wrongly told their benefits were being cut by $300 and the state has not notified them of the mistake. Even though no one will lose benefits, the state Department of Health Services decided not to notify those affected with a letter and instead is only telling those who call in to complain. Agency spokesman Seth Boffeli said a computer glitch led to 5,000 Medicare recipients wrongly being notified that the state would no longer be paying their benefits.
