Reporting Fraud, Waste and Abuse

Louisiana Healthcare Connections is serious about finding and reporting times that Louisiana Medicaid funds are used in the wrong way. This is called waste, fraud or abuse.

To report waste, abuse, or fraud, gather as much information as possible.

When reporting about a provider  (a doctor, dentist, counselor, etc.) include: 

  • Name, address, and phone number of provider
  • Name and address of the facility (hospital, nursing home, home health agency, etc.)
  • Medicaid number of the provider and facility, if you have it
  • Type of provider (doctor, dentist, therapist, pharmacist, etc.)
  • Names and phone numbers of other witnesses who can help in the investigation
  • Dates of events 
  • Summary of what happened

When reporting about someone who gets benefits, include: 

  • The person’s name
  • The person’s date of birth, Social Security Number, or case number if you have it 
  • The city where the person lives 
  • Specific details about the waste, abuse, or fraud

If you think a provider, member or other person is misusing Medicaid benefits, please tell us right away. Louisiana Healthcare Connections will take your call seriously and you do not need to give your name.
