In the world of government, there are many types of audits. There’s the financial audit required by state law to be submitted to the state treasurer annually. There are audits related to grants. And occasionally there is an audit conducted by the Public Employee Benefit Authority to ensure all dependents covered by the state health plan are qualified to receive the benefits.
PEBA is in the process of conducting this periodic audit, and officials in SC cities and towns need to make sure their employees are prepared with accurate documentation to verify their dependents qualify for state health benefits.
