2012 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Volume 1, General Information : Section 1: Provider Enrollment and Responsibilities : 1.7 Medicaid Waste, Abuse, and Fraud Policy : 1.7.1 Reporting Waste, Abuse, and Fraud

1.7.1
Anyone with knowledge about suspected Medicaid waste, abuse, or fraud of provider services must report the information to the HHSC-OIG. To report waste, abuse, or fraud, visit www.hhs.state.tx.us and select Reporting Waste, Abuse, and Fraud. Waste, abuse, and fraud may also be reported by calling the OIG hotline at 1-800-436-6184. All reports of waste, abuse, or fraud received through either channel remain confidential.
HHSC-OIG encourages providers to voluntarily investigate and report fraud, waste, abuse, or inappropriate payments of Medicaid funds in their own office. Providers are required to report these activities to HHSC-OIG when identified. HHSC-OIG will work collaboratively with self-reporting providers. For more information on provider self-reporting, visit http://oig.hhsc.state.tx.us/ProviderSelfReporting/Self_Reporting.aspx.
