Code Ann. § 71-5-183(g).
Other State agencies also investigate TennCare fraud. You can report TennCare fraud, as well as abuse of TennCare patients, to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Medicaid Fraud Control Division. TennCare fraud committed by TennCare beneficiaries can be reported to the Office of Inspector General.
