  • Strengthen efforts to reform the delivery of care to individuals covered under Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Plans (CHIP) 
  • Strengthen program integrity by improving accountability and transparency

Reporting Fraud, Waste or Abuse to Us

When you report a situation that could be considered fraud, you’re doing your part to help save money for the health care system and prevent personal loss for others. If you suspect another provider or member has committed fraud, waste or abuse, you have a responsibility and a right to report it.

Taking action and making a report is an important first step. After your report is made, we will work to detect, correct and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse in the health care system.

Call us at 1-844-359-7736 or visit uhc.com/fraud to report any issues or concerns.
