Medicaid Fraud Control Unit

The MFCU focuses on cases involving fraud and patient abuse. For more than 25 years, the Agents assigned to this unit have consistently identified more fraud dollars than the unit has spent. Every year, MFCU Agents remain aggressive in assisting TennCare recover millions of dollars in restitution for Tennesseans. Additionally, information obtained through patient abuse cases is used to compile the state’s Abuse Registry, which is managed by the Tennessee Department of Health.
