Help Wyoming Stop Medicaid Fraud

When providers and patients steal from Wyoming Medicaid, their criminal acts decrease the resources available to the program for other people in need. Medicaid fraud degrades the quality of treatment available to all, as dishonest providers try to reduce their costs and increase their personal profit. To compensate for fraud, Wyoming must either decrease services to honest providers and clients or raise taxes. Use this site to learn about what Wyoming is doing to stop Medicaid fraud, and how you can help.

Provider Fraud: Fraud committed by a doctor , health facility, home based facilities (including non-medical professional services) available to Medicaid clients.

Client Fraud: Medicaid clients intentionally receiving services they are not entitled to by a Medicaid provider, or obtaining Medicaid health services they do not qualify for.
