The state’s health care regulator also revealed that the number of affected claims — 121,227 — was far higher than Sunshine State had previously acknowledged.

The state identified problems that included denials for invalid diagnosis codes, incorrect age restrictions, claims processed under incorrect benefit packages and more.
