AG Guidance to Public Entities Regarding OMA and IPRA Compliance During COVID-19 State of Emergency - Click Here

The Medicaid Fraud Control Unit Investigates and prosecutes fraud committed by Medicaid providers, including hospitals, nursing homes, care facilities, laboratories, doctors, dentists, nurses, personal care providers, and therapists.  We conduct investigations into billing for services not rendered, billing for a higher level of service than  provided, fraudulent prescriptions for dangerous opioids and narcotics, and whistleblower actions brought by an individual on behalf of the government. How Medicaid providers commit fraud is constantly evolving and the Unit must adjust accordingly to protect the system that helps so many New Mexicans.

The Unit also investigates and prosecutes abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation against residents in facilities, including assisted living facilities and nursing homes.
