Protect your tax dollars from Medicaid Fraud

When people receive benefits they don’t deserve or when providers are paid for services that were not supplied or authorized, it wastes your tax dollars and takes services away from those who need them.  For more information about Medicaid Fraud, or to report any suspected Medicaid Fraud, contact the State of Michigan Office of the Investigator General by calling 855-643-7283 or going by online and visiting www.michigan.gov/fraud.

Sometimes people may need a little help managing finances or, in the other cases, may not be able to continue making decisions on their own. As a result, there are organizations in the community that may be able to assist clients.  There are different levels of assistance and costs involved so you should discuss this with the agency before you make your decision.
