Who We Are

At the Center for Program Integrity (CPI), our mission is to detect and combat fraud, waste and abuse of the Medicare and Medicaid programs. We do this by making sure CMS is paying the right provider the right amount for services covered under our programs. We work with providers, states, and other stakeholders to support proper enrollment and accurate billing practices. Our work focuses on protecting patients while also minimizing unnecessary burden on providers.
