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.

  • COLLABORATION WITH STATESCPI offers support and venues for states to collaborate and share best fraud-fighting practices, making the Medicaid program stronger and protecting the care of states’ Medicaid populations.


CPI’s priorities in 2019 focus on investing in data and analytics to support fraud detection and prevention efforts, reducing burdensome documentation requirements for providers, and improving communication and collaboration with all our partners.
