Office of the Medicaid Inspector General

The Office of Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) was transferred to the Attorney General’s Office in June 2017. The duties of the OMIG are to establish a full-time program of audit, investigation and performance review to provide increased accountability, integrity and oversight of the Kansas Medicaid program (KanCare), the MediKan program, and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), and to assist in improving state agency and program operations and help deter and identify fraud, waste, abuse, and illegal acts related to those programs.1
