Results of UPICs' Benefit Integrity Activities

The Unified Program Integrity Contractors (UPICs) are the only benefit integrity contractors that safeguard both the Medicare and Medicaid programs from fraud, waste, and abuse. The Medicare and Medicaid programs provide health coverage to more than 100 million Americans. UPICs must effectively detect and deter fraud, waste, and abuse. This study will continue OIG's work examining the results from benefit integrity contractors' identification and investigation of fraud, waste, and abuse. It also will identify any barriers and challenges UPICs have experienced while conducting unified benefit integrity activities across Medicare and Medicaid.
