    Fraud and Abuse

    Benefits Recipients
    If you suspect someone of fraudulently applying for or receiving benefits from the commonwealth, such as SNAP or Cash Assistance, please call our Welfare Fraud TipLine at 1-800-932-0582.  You may state your concern anonymously should you desire to do so and any information provided will remain confidential.

    Medical Assistance Fraud
    The vast majority of Medical Assistance (MA) providers and recipients provide and receive care within the boundaries of applicable regulations. Unfortunately, a small number of Medical Assistance recipients and providers engage in practices that are fraudulent or abuse of the Medical Assistance program. Dollars lost to such practices are then unavailable for providing care to those in need. The Department of Public Welfare is committed to eliminating all forms of fraud and abuse within the Medical Assistance program. Your help will enable us accomplish this goal.

    You can report suspected fraud and abuse by telephone (1-866-DPW-TIPS), U. S. Mail or email. Reported problems will be referred to the Office of Administration's Bureau of Program Integrity for investigation, analysis and determination of the appropriate course of action.
