National Association of Medicaid Fraud Control Units (NAMFCU)

Founded in 1978, the National Association of Medicaid Fraud Control Units (NAMFCU) has played a pivotal role in providing the Medicaid Fraud Control Units (MFCUs) with a national presence.

We trust that you will find a great deal of useful information on this site about the work of NAMFCU. NAMFCU is a professional association created to provide training, promote communication and interstate cooperation, provide for the exchange of information, and educate the public about the work of the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU) program.

The MFCUs, created by Congress in 1977, are federal and state-funded law enforcement entities that investigate and prosecute provider fraud and violations of state law pertaining to fraud in the administration of the Medicaid program. In addition, the MFCUs are required to review complaints of resident abuse or neglect in nursing homes and other health care facilities.

The MFCUs have a proud history of carrying out their mission with a high degree of dedication and professionalism.
