According to the Texas Attorney General’s resource listed above, the Civil Medicaid Fraud (CMF) Division:
CMF protects taxpayers by enforcing the Texas Medicaid Fraud Prevention Act (TMFPA), chapter 36 of the Texas Human Resources Code. The TMFPA permits private citizens to file lawsuits on behalf of the state against those who violate the TMFPA. These private citizens are referred to as “relators” and they assist the state in identifying and pursuing fraudulent activity committed against the Medicaid program. Relators in successful matters receive a portion of the recovery. The OAG may also pursue cases on its own on behalf of the Medicaid program.
