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
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.
