The MDHHS OIG Integrity Division (ID) conducts investigations into alleged Medicaid provider fraud, waste and abuse and receives allegations of potentially fraudulent activity from various sources, including the public, beneficiaries, providers, and other government and/or state law enforcement and regulatory agencies.

The position's purpose as an entry level Departmental Technician is to assist with the functions utilized to monitor all the duties within a section of regionally assigned healthcare fraud investigators:

  • monitors various ID email boxes and coordinates timely communication to appropriate healthcare fraud investigators (e.g., provider responses to overpayment notices, provider appeal notices, etc.).
  • performs quality control reviews of all Medicaid provider overpayment notices drafted by the healthcare fraud investigations for the assigned investigation section.
  • communicates overpayment notices to Medicaid providers through email and/or mail.
  • enters receivables and payments into the Adult Services Authorized Payments (ASAP) system.
  • creates gross adjustments in the Community Health Automated Medicaid Processing System (CHAMPS).
  • performs data entry to ensure all receivables and payments are timely and accurately accounted for in MARIS. The Office of Inspector General is a criminal justice agency within MDHHS.
