Bogus EFT Forms

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – Office of Inspector General is currently investigating a fraud scheme in which bogus electronic fund transfer (EFT) forms are being transmitted to State Medicaid agencies. These bogus EFT forms, which use the official format of their respective State Medicaid agencies, represent to be from medical providers/hospitals and are being used to update bank account information on file for receiving claims payments. Multiple State Medicaid agencies have already fallen victim to this fraud scheme, causing millions of dollars in claims payments intended for providers to be diverted to bank accounts held by fraudsters.

One way to avoid falling victim to this scheme is to independently verify the authenticity of this document by contacting the provider/hospital using contact information on their official website/already on file, and not the contact information contained on the EFT change form.

If your respective State agency has fallen victim, or has been the attempted victim, of this fraud scheme, please contact ASAC Korby Harshaw at Korby.Harshaw@oig.hhs.gov.
