IHSS Fraud

  • Medi-Cal fraud is an intentional attempt by some providers, and in some cases beneficiaries, to receive unauthorized payments or benefits from the program. This fraud can take many forms, but the most common involve providers knowingly billing for unnecessary services, for services not performed, or for more expensive services than they actually provide.
  • You may report Fraud to the IHSS Office.
  • You may report Fraud to the San Bernardino Fraud, Waste and Abuse Hotline at 1-877-605-2321.
  • The Department of Health Care Services asks that anyone who observes or has knowledge of suspicious health care activity to call the DHCS Medi-Cal Fraud Hotline telephone number, 1-800-822-6222, to report it.
