Client fraud is when a member lies or does not share correct information so that they can qualify for Medicaid benefits. It can also be when someone uses another person's ID card to get OHP benefits. Find examples on Oregon's fraud reporting website.

Provider fraud can be many things. It includes billing Medicaid for services that the member did not receive, did not ask for, or were not medically necessary. Find examples on Oregon's Medicaid fraud website.
