(WHAS11) -- Kentucky auditor Adam Edelen is expected to announce on Wednesday the findings of his office's investigation of three managed care companies that began administering Kentucky's Medicaid program in November.

Edelen is expected to announce that the companies, CoventryCares, WellCare and Kentucky Spirit, have received state funds far in excess of the claims they have paid.

In a cost-cutting move amid a budget crisis, Kentucky shifted its Medicaid administration to the three companies.  

Yet, a stream of medical providers and pharmacists have complained that the managed care operators have been slow to reimburse claims.
