WHEELING, W.Va. — Investigations of Medicaid fraud would move to the West Virginia Attorney General’s Office under legislation recently passed by the Legislature, and Attorney General Patrick Morrisey thinks the move could benefit the state financially.
The Medicaid Fraud Unit within the State Department of Health and Human Resources presently oversees the investigations, and Senate Bill 318 would transfer that unit to the State Attorney General’s Office effective Oct. 1.
The measure is awaiting signature by Gov. Jim Justice.
