Medicaid Integrity Institute
The Medicaid Integrity Program, established by Section 1936 of the Social Security Act, requires the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide effective support and assistance to States to assist them in combating Medicaid provider fraud, waste, and abuse.
In September 2007, CMS established the Medicaid Integrity Institute (MII), the first national Medicaid program integrity training center for States. CMS executed an interagency agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Located at DOJ's National Advocacy Center in Columbia, South Carolina, the MII provides a unique opportunity for CMS to offer substantive training, technical assistance, and support to the States in a structured learning environment.
The mission of the MII is to provide effective training, tailored to meet the ongoing needs of State Medicaid program integrity employees, with the goal of raising national program integrity performance standards and professionalism. By embracing and utilizing sound learning methodology and instructional design, coupled with progressive technology, the MII training staff provides professional education to State Medicaid agency staff.
