The National Association of Medicaid Fraud Control Units (NAMFCU) represents medicaid fraud control units across the country. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands have Medicaid Fraud Control Units. All but five are located in the state’s Office of the Attorney General.
The mission of the National Association of Medicaid Fraud Control Units (NAMFCU) is to serve and promote the success of its member Units in meeting their statutory obligations both in combatting Medicaid provider fraud and protecting our nation’s care facility residents, through training, communication, and information sharing.

- Provide a forum for the mutual exchange of views and experiences on subjects of importance to the state Medicaid Fraud Control Units.
- Foster interstate cooperation on legal and law enforcement issues affecting the Units.
- Improve the quality of Medicaid fraud and resident abuse investigations and prosecutions by conducting training programs and providing technical assistance for Association members.
- Facilitate communication among the state Medicaid Fraud Control Units that are Association members.
