Medicaid Fraud & Elder Abuse

The Medicaid Fraud Control Unit Investigates and prosecutes fraud committed by Medicaid providers, including hospitals, nursing homes, care facilities, laboratories, doctors, dentists, nurses, personal care providers, and therapists. We conduct investigations into billing for services not rendered, billing for a higher level of service than provided, fraudulent prescriptions for dangerous opioids and narcotics, and whistleblower actions brought by an individual on behalf of the government. How Medicaid providers commit fraud is constantly evolving and the Unit must adjust accordingly to protect the system that helps so many New Mexicans.

The Unit also investigates and prosecutes abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation against residents in facilities, including assisted living facilities and nursing homes.

Report Medicaid Fraud or Resident Abuse / Neglect / Exploitation

With the New Mexico Department of Justice’s Electronic Complaint Submission (ECS) application, you can submit your complaint to our office without having to fill out paper forms.

The image is the New Mexico Department of Justice primary seal. This seal is framed with gold gradient rope and a slim gold bar followed by a thicker dark blue circular bar that has white text that reads, "State of New Mexico" at the bottom and "Department of Justice" at the top. At the center of the seal is a gradient circle with a dark blue roman-inspired Pillar in the shape of New Mexico.
