Division of Public Assistance Fraud

Department of Financial Services, Division of Public Assistance Fraud

During the 2010 session, the Florida Legislature enacted a bill requiring that changes be made in how the State of Florida administers Medicaid. Among other provisions, this bill requires that:

  • a Medicaid and Public Assistance Fraud Strike Force be established within the Department of Financial Services;
  • the Division of Public Assistance Fraud be established within the Department of Financial Services, transferring responsibility for this function from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement;
  • the Divisions of Insurance Fraud and Public Assistance Fraud in the Department of Financial Services be collocated with the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit if possible; and
  • that positions dedicated to Medicaid managed care fraud be collocated with the Division of Insurance Fraud.
