States are targeting Medicaid fraud and abuse with an array of policies and tools. To help policy makers learn about steps taken in their state and across the country, the State Health Care Spending Project created an online database containing hundreds of practices found to be promising by state and federal Medicaid agencies.
Drawing on reports from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the State Health Care Spending project built a database that makes it simple to learn about anti-fraud and abuse strategies used in a specific state or at different stages in Medicaid’s interactions with providers and patients.
The database centralizes the hundreds of anti-fraud and abuse practices, as featured in 70 CMS reports available online as of December 2012. Policy approaches from 49 states and the District of Columbia are included.
