Section 1: Provider Enrollment and Responsibilities : 1.10 Medicaid Waste, Abuse, and Fraud Policy : 1.10.2 Suspected Cases of Provider Waste, Abuse, and Fraud

HHSC-OIG is responsible for minimizing waste, abuse, and fraud by Medicaid providers. HHSC-OIG has established and continues to refine criteria for identifying cases of possible waste, abuse, or fraud and recouping provider overpayments. When HHSC-OIG identifies fraud, waste, and abuse, a case may be referred to the MFCU or Antitrust and Civil Medicaid Fraud Section, or result in administrative enforcement.
