Office of the Inspector General

The Office of Inspector General (OIG) is responsible for the integrity of the $9 billion Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), Arizona's Medicaid program. The OIG is also responsible for handling reports of fraud and abuse of the AHCCCS program.


The mission of the State of Arizona AHCCCS Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is to work with providers to advance the integrity of the Medicaid program, while concurrently ensuring access to services for members and maintaining a cost effective program for Arizona’s taxpayers. We are committed to detecting potential fraud, waste and abuse within the AHCCCS program and recovering improper payments. As part of our multi-disciplinary approach to attaining these goals, we are making a concentrated effort to recognize providers who find problems within their own organizations, self-disclose those issues to the OIG, and return inappropriate payments.
