Office of Inspector General

The Department of Health Services Office of the Inspector General (OIG) was established by Governor Walker in October 2011.  The OIG consolidates all Department of Health Services program integrity, audit and fraud investigation activities within one office. Led by Inspector General Alan White, the OIG is charged with protecting the taxpayers of Wisconsin from misuse of public assistance programs such as Medicaid, FoodShare, FamilyCare, among other DHS related programs.

Report FraudThe OIG encourages the public to report any fraudulent use of public assistance dollars through its fraud hotline, 1-877-865-3432, or on this web page. The OIG monitors these contacts and reports monthly on the results of these public contacts. 

Staff within the OIG work closely with other state and local partners in identifying misuses of public assistance funds, and where appropriate, forward fraud cases to federal, state and local officials for prosecution.  Resources for state and local partners that work with the OIG.
