CONCORD - Carroll County racked up $150,000 in dental insurance coverage for employees that should not have been covered on the plan - including many whom hadn't worked for Carroll County for years.
A report from a county human resources generalist showed 80 people were never removed from the plan.
Three of the recipients had died, said Carroll County Administrator Kenneth Robichaud.
The audit lowered the monthly dental bill from more than $11,000 to $7396.34.
Robichaud said his predecessor had overlooked the issue for years. The problem dates back to 1992, he said.
The report uncovered the following:
-3 deceased people
-58 people who could not be found in the payroll system (some reduced to part-time)
-3 people listed twice, under a married and maiden name
-3 retirees who did not want to remain on the plan
The former Carroll County Adminstrator is Kathy Garry.
Garry retired this summer, and Robichaud told NH1 News he did not know her reason for leaving.
Garry did not return our phone calls.
According to the report, the issue has been resolved and "cleanup was considered to be complete prior to February 27, 2014."
Protocols have since changed, instead of one person reviewing coverage payments, several people will be looking them over, Robichaud said.
