Medicaid fraud has become an alarming issue in the United States. Medicaid has identified certain billing procedures that may indicate cases of fraud. If a health care provider engages in these practices, Medicare and Medicaid can flag them and make inquiries into their actions. Few doctors commit fraud deliberately. However, many of the mistakes arise from the complexity that surrounds hospital billing systems. Small issues can easily be detected in the audits, and these can have dire consequences on the health care providers. If Medicaid suspects you of fraudulent activities or an improper billing system, they are obligated to make an inquiry. The inquiry begins by requesting certain documentation. The audit begins when something in your billing or coding systems is flagged. Once Medicaid looks into the documents and records you have submitted, they send a letter announcing an audit. Once the documents received have been submitted, the Medicaid auditors will determine whether further investigation is necessary.
