Medicaid Patient Abuse Prevention Act

This bill allows state Medicaid fraud control units to investigate complaints of patient abuse or neglect in additional settings.

Currently, such units may review complaints regarding patients who are in Medicaid-funded health care facilities or certain board-and-care facilities.
