Aug 26, 2012 - From staff reportsA new website and hotline will make it easier for Wyoming residents to report potential Medicaid fraud.
Operated by the Wyoming Department of Health, Medicaid is a joint federal and state government program that pays for medical care for some low-income and medically needy individuals and families.
The new website's address is stopwyomedicaidfraud.com.
The hotline can be reached at 1-855-846-2563.
Both efforts are intended to strengthen the ongoing work by Wyoming Medicaid and the Wyoming Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit to combat Medicaid fraud in the state.
Regina Cox, quality assurance manager with the Wyoming Department of Health's Division of Healthcare Financing, said the website allows for simple, anonymous reporting of suspected fraud.
