Division Information 

The work of the Office’s Medicaid Fraud Control Division (MFCD) focuses on both criminal and civil law enforcement. The 75% federally funded MFCD‘s mission is combating provider fraud, abuse and neglect in residential facilities and involving Medicaid recipients in non-institutional settings.
MFCD’s Headquarters is located in Olympia, Washington with some team members also located at the AGO’s Spokane Office and Seattle Office.  The Division currently has a staff of 64 FTEs, including attorneys, auditors, special agents, data analysts, clinical health investigators and professional support staff.
MFCD involves protecting not only the Medicaid program of roughly 22.9 billion dollars per annum, but also its most vulnerable persons, typically elderly persons in residential facilities or persons abused or neglected by a Medicaid Provider.  In many of our cases, there is no precedent so MFCD is consistently on the cutting edge of legal theories and issues.    The cases range from abuse and neglect of persons in nursing homes, large scale organized individual and corporate civil and criminal fraudulent activity to national whistleblower actions.    Our staff is a highly professional, fun and seasoned analytical investigative team.  MFCD is unique in that all cases have an attorney, special agent, data analyst assigned with legal support.  This, and the great people who make up the division, gives MFC a particularly terrific team atmosphere.
