Hot off the presses!
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General is revving up oversight for the States Medicaid Fraud Control Units.
New Medicaid Fraud Control Unit Section
To better showcase the important role played by State Medicaid Fraud Control Units (MFCUs), OIG has developed a new section of the website devoted to these State organizations and their activities. The 50 MFCUs, which are funded on a matching basis as part of the Medicaid program, are established in Federal law as "single, identifiable" Units operated by the States and devoted to the investigation and prosecution of Medicaid fraud and patient abuse and neglect. As part of its oversight responsibility for the MFCUs, OIG conducts periodic reviews of Unit activities and issues annual certifications.
You can explore the new MFCU section and its various links here:
As a feature of this new section, OIG will now be featuring press releases of enforcement actions taken by these State agencies. You can view our initial list of April MFCU enforcement actions here:
