Program Integrity & Compliance
Medicaid agencies must monitor for post-payment fraud, systemic waste, and abuse to comply with state and federal regulations. We collaborate with clients and partner entities, including states’ Medicaid Fraud Control Units and their Office of the Inspector General, to mitigate abuse, while extending educational opportunities to providers.
What Challenges You
Medicaid agencies like yours are charged with ensuring the integrity of the Medicaid program. Federal regulations require that the agencies perform post-payment audits of the claims payment system; federal state plans must incorporate program integrity reviews and data mining across all provider types, including managed care plans. In addition, unexpected events, including paused federal and state program integrity requirements and new healthcare delivery methods, can lead to additional challenges for states.
