The survey found that state government hospitals received an average of $1,140 per day, and local government hospitals received an average of $1,514 per day, with one such hospital receiving $9,176 per day. Per the report, the federal agency that manages Medicaid "does not have a standard policy delineating criteria for when payments made to individual providers are economical or efficient, nor does it have a process to identify payments to individual providers that appear questionable."
