The Florida Medicaid program is one of the five largest in the country and has an estimated $30 billion annual budget. Each month Florida Medicaid covers medical services for almost 4 million recipients. To most effectively serve this large patient population, one of the Agency goals is to ensure fewer budgeted dollars are lost to fraud, abuse, and waste. The Bureau of Medicaid Program Integrity (MPI) does this specifically through audits and investigations of healthcare providers, including managed care plans, suspected of engaging in fraudulent or abusive behavior, as well as overpayment recoveries, administrative sanctions, and the referral of suspected fraud or other criminal violations for law enforcement investigation.

MPI is organized by the functions that fall within the Bureau’s responsibility:  Fraud and Abuse Detection, Prevention, Overpayment Recovery, and Managed Care oversight.  MPI operates with dynamic and fast-paced units that work closely with one another to serve the overall bureau mission.  Resolving the complexity and scope of fraudulent and abusive behavior in the Florida Medicaid program, these units work within the current framework while constantly seeking new and innovative strategies, methods, and technologies to fight fraud, abuse, and waste. To do this, these highly collaborative and innovative units rely on teams with diverse educational and experience backgrounds.
