Utilizing various state laws, including the New York State Penal Law, the False Claims Act, Social Services Law §145-b, and the Executive Law, the Unit, supported by the work of its forensic accountants/auditors, brings civil causes of action or secures criminal indictments to protect the integrity of the State Medicaid program and to protect the health and well-being of residents of residential care facilities. Many of these actions are conducted in coordination with other state, federal or local government and prosecutorial agencies, and have resulted in large-scale financial recoveries on behalf of the State of New York, as well as the arrest and prosecution of various wrongdoers.

Additionally, MFCU investigates reports of abuse and neglect at nursing homes and other health care facilities in New York. The importance of this work is highlighted in the OAG’s recently released report investigating allegations of COVID-19-related neglect of nursing home residents across New York State.
