Michigan Governor signs Medicaid Whistleblower Legislation

Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm signed Medicaid Whistleblower Protection legislation into law last week in the hopes of reducing the state’s Medicaid fraud. The legislation was first unveiled in March 2005, and was vigorously supported by Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox.

The impact on Michigan could be dramatic. National studies indicate that between 3-10% of a state’s Medicaid costs are fraudulent claims. For Michigan, this equates to anywhere between $225-800 million annually. In addition, the successful prosecution of Medicaid fraud will result in penalties 3 times the amount of the restitution awarded to the state.
