Podcast on Medicaid Fraud Controls

Posted on June 02, 2015

Through Medicaid, hundreds of thousands of doctors and other health care professionals provide care to tens of millions of beneficiaries—at a cost of $310 billion to the federal government in fiscal year 2014. To help ensure only legitimate providers and beneficiaries participate in the program, states screen Medicaid enrollment applications for factors such as income level for beneficiaries and medical licenses for providers.

Hear our podcast with Seto Bagdoyan, a director in GAO’s Forensic Audits and Investigative Service team, who led a recent review of Medicaid enrollment screening efforts in 4 selected states: Arizona, Florida, Michigan, and New Jersey.
