Medicaid Fraud and Residential Abuse Unit

The Vermont Medicaid Fraud and Residential Abuse Unit is a federally funded state program that investigates and prosecutes Medicaid provider fraud and violation of state laws pertaining to fraud in the administration of the Medicaid program. In addition, the unit reviews all complaints of patient abuse, exploitation or neglect in all health care facilities that receive Medicaid funds. The unit also investigates any patient abuse, exploitation and neglect complaints that have arisen in any Medicaid funded program, which includes transportation of clients or respite care. Attorneys, investigators, and an auditor, trained in the complex investigation and litigation aspects of health care fraud and patient abuse, exploitation, and neglect, staff the unit. The Medicaid Fraud Unit is also available to conduct training and educational speaking engagements on any of the aforementioned topics.
