BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 26, 2013 Page15 MassHealth (Continued actively monitored the fre- quency of drug tests and ensured that tests were medically necessary. According to the audit, sub- stance abuse professionals stated some testing occurred because they were pres- sured by laboratories and sober houses to sign orders requiring frequent testing. These clinicians said that if they did not sign the orders, their patients would be re- moved from housing or di- rected to other physicians who would authorize the tests. The report also identified $1.3 million in unallowable drug tests conducted at the UMass Memorial Medical Center (UMMMC). These tests were performed for residential monitoring by sober homes, which provide housing for people recover- ing from substance abuse disorders. UMMMC officials said they were preparing to repay the Commonwealth LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street East Cambridge, MA 02141 (617) 768-5800 Docket No. MI13P1667EA Estate of GLADYS C.

Other findings include: * Three laboratories (Pre- cision Testing Laboratories, Inc.; Lab USA Inc.; and New England Pain Institute) used a deceptive billing practice, known as unbundling, to circumvent price limits and overcharge MassHealth $4.5 million for four fiscal years. * MassHealth spent $7 mil- lion on certain tests, such as alcohol urine testing, that are commonly consid- ered medically unnecessary by the substance abuse treatment community. MassHealth's claims pro- cessing system does not ad- equately prevent and deny payment for duplicate drug tests. Auditors found 16,441 instances of MassHealth paying for multiple drug tests for the same member on the same day totaling $313,623. Auditor Bump has called on MassHealth to recover more than $6 million from laboratories reviewed in the report and to apply stricter oversight on its payments for drug tests. MassHealth has responded positively to audit findings and has al- ready begun implementing new policies in line with the Auditor's recommendations. "MassHealth is doing right by implementing better standards, system controls, and monitoring activities to detect and deny excessive drug testing. This will help ensure that the Common- wealth's limited resources are used for effective patient treatments," said Auditor Bump. The Office of the State Auditor conducts technical and performance assess- ments of state government's programs, departments, agencies, authorities, con- tracts, and vendors. With its reports, the OSA issues rec- ommendations to improve accountability, efficiency, and transparency. The audit report will be made available online at www. mass.gov / auditor.

Run date: 4/26/13 Grow What You Eat; Cook What You Grow from State Point Media Cooking from the garden is not like cook- ing from the store. There's nothing more tasty, nutritious and satisfying than fresh, homemade meals made from the fruits, veg- etables and herbs you grew yourself. Experts say that even with modest amounts of time and space, you can grow an organic garden plot that feeds your fam- ily all year long. "The simplest methods of gardening work best," says Barbara Damrosch, organic gar- dening expert and co-author of the new book, The Four Season Farm Gardener's Cook- book, which serves as both a garden guide and a healthful cookbook. "There is very little you can't accomplish in the garden if you trust the systems that are already in place." Damrosch and co-author Eliot Coleman contend that organic vegetable gardening is not only healthy for you and your family, but is also good for the planet and can make a serious dent in your food expenses They are offering these great tips to any- one looking to grow and cook their own food: When choosing which plants to grow, consider how much space you have. Salad crops, for example, give you the most vari- ety in a garden of limited size. Consider prioritizing crops whose flavor is most nota- bly lacking in supermarket varieties, such as tomatoes, strawberries, cucumbers and melons. It helps to get to knowdifferent plants on a family basis. Family groupings are very important in planning how to rotate the crops in your garden from year to year, and much of the techniques that work for one vegetable, apply equally well to its cousins. Don't let weeds get ahead of you. Once they've gained the upper hand, getting rid of them can seem almost impossible. The ideal time to control weeds is when they are tiny, right after they first appear. Take the extra time to plant in straight lines, which can help with weed control. Veteran gardeners tend to be support- ive resources to newcomers. Let friends with green thumbs share their enthusiasm and expertise with you. Or get involved in an organic community garden, where there is no shortage of experienced gardeners to consult. Pass up the modern habit of eating any crop, any time of year by letting your garden feed you. FrUits and vegetables that come from halfway around the world were often harvested far too early and can have a dis- appointing, bland taste. By planning meals from your garden, you will become a more creative, improvisational cook. Additional gardening tips are available by logging on to www.fourseasonfarm.com. Eating is one of the most important things we do, so don't just settle for what the supermarket has to offer. Gardening can revolutionize the way you eat and help you take greater control of your family's nutrition.
