* Federal or State tax return
What to do if You are Suspected of Medicaid Fraud
If you are suspected of Medicaid fraud, you will get a letter from the local Human Resource Administrations Office. They are going to request you come to the office for an investigative interview. It is best if you cooperate with them and bring all requested documentation to support your case. You will be requested to bring with you the following verification to support your eligibility:
* Some form of State-issued identification
* Pay stubs, proof of all income received by your household
* Tax returns, if self-employed (profit and loss statement)
* Bank statements
* Birth and marriage certificates
* Vehicle registration cards for all vehicles
