Medicaid Integrity Program

Since 2006, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Medicaid Integrity Program has been collaborating with states to promote best practices and awareness of Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) fraud, waste, and abuse. Our oversight and educational work help preserve Medicaid dollars and support states as they serve the needs of Medicaid beneficiaries.

Oversight Activities

We undertake various oversight activities to ensure that Medicaid dollars are spent appropriately and accurately. For additional information, see our 5-year, Comprehensive Medicaid Integrity Plan (PDF) for FYs 2019-2023 to protect taxpayer dollars in the Medicaid program and CHIP by combatting fraud, waste, and abuse.

Educational Efforts

We provide a variety of educational resources online to help states, health plans, providers, and others in the fight against fraud, waste, and abuse. These resources cover important topics and best practices to support state program integrity staff. We also provide toolkits that explain Medicaid benefits that are prone to errors, such as non-emergency medical transportation, personal care services, and more.

Medicaid Integrity Institute

We provide training year-round to State Medicaid Program Integrity personnel through the Medicaid Integrity Institute.

Report Suspected Fraud, Waste, and Abuse

Medicaid fraud, waste, and abuse can happen at the provider, supplier, and beneficiary level. Because each state manages its own Medicaid program, you should contact your state to report suspicious activity. You can also learn how to report Medicare fraud, waste, or abuse.
