Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Cost YOU!
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is asking anyone with knowledge of Medicaid fraud or abuse to report it by calling their toll-free number at
If you are unsure what Medicaid fraud or abuse is, it could include any of several dishonest acts – from letting someone else use your Medicaid card to undergoing unnecessary medical procedures. A more complete list is available on the web at http://www.dhhs.state.nc.us/dma/provider/fraud.htm
Thinking "it doesn’t hurt anyone" is just wrong. Every dollar wasted or stolen is a dollar that could have been spent on providing health care to someone who needs it and who follows the rules. And those dollars add up—tens of millions in North Carolina each year. Whether you’re a provider, recipient or simply a taxpayer, Medicaid fraud and abuse cost YOU!
If you know of Medicaid fraud or abuse, call 1-877-DMA-TIP1, or call the DHHS Care-Line (English or Spanish) at 1-800-662-7030.
