"The message to those providers out there who see the Medicaid program as an ATM, who use it to make monthly withdrawals to buy jets and $8 million houses, is that there's a different inspector general's office now," said Jack Stick, HHSC's deputy inspector general.

...

...
The meeting was held at the office of the OIG with myself, Dr. Anderton, Mr. Jack Stick, two additional attorneys with the OIG and an investigator with OIG.
...
At this point, I realized that Jack Stick was totally in charge. none of the other people representing OIG said a word, asked a question, or moved in their chairs. All conversation was between myself and Mr. Stick.
At this point, Mr. Stick told me that he didn't see any evidence of fraud. But he then indicated that OIG wanted 40% of my income back from the time that I had been working with the medicaid program. Mr. Stick told me that if I wrote a check to OIG for 1.2 million then this might all go away. If I sold everything I own with my life insurance thrown in, I couldn't raise 1.2 million.
I told Mr. Stick that since I had used all my reserved monies getting through the start up of managed care due to the fraud that MCNA was doing that I had enough monies to keep my office open for three weeks.
At this point, Mr. Stick said that they needed to keep good people like me working, that if I would send them financial information for the last two years they would see what they could do. He pointed to the large room outside and said it was usually full of 80 CPAs and they were good and quick and after they looked at it he would have an answer for the the next day. I had the financial information to my attorney on the following Monday and he forwarded it to the OIG.
...
Mr. Stick told me that if I did owe money that the State of Texas would work with me. I'm 66; do you want to put $1.2 million on a 20 year note and I get to practice until I'm 86 years old? I doubt my skills will get better at that age. And if Mr. Stick said there was not fraud why is my money being held, anyway?

It is now official - Jack Stick, HHSC Chief Counsel and former OIG deputy inspector general for enforcement, has resigned from HHSC over published allegations of interference in the HHSC contracting process on two contracts - one for data mining software for Medicaid fraud for OIG and a second for an HHSC data warehouse.
...
In August, Stick interfered with a tentative contract awarded to Truven Health Analytics, a Michigan company that after years of negotiations had been picked to build a so-called enterprise data warehouse - an expensive, omnibus and complicated project more than a decade in the making.
In a private meeting with state contract managers, Stick questioned why Truven had been chosen and suggested that 21CT could do the job instead, according to a person who attended the meeting.
...
More importantly, Stick, as deputy inspector general for enforcement and per his own comments in 2012 webinar, was probably the prime architect of the changes to OIG that led it to institute "credible allegation of fraud" payment holds inappropriately against providers. These led to bankruptcy and financial hardship for dentists and others under investigation because they had no due process opportunity to defend themselves.
In the 2012 webinar, he made statements about the reorganization of OIG investigators to go "after the money" rather than fraud.
