New York Medicaid Fraud Unit Vows To Protect Vulnerable Nursing Home Residents From Abuse And Neglect

The New York State Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU) was established over 30 years ago with the intent to protect the New York’s most vulnerable patients from elder abuse
and neglect
. The MFCU’s mission remains the same today. The MFCU, under the direction of Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, has published a brochure, “Protecting Patients From Abuse and Neglect”, which discusses the types of investigations the office undertakes in nursing homes, the types of crimes providers can be charged with, how to contact the office and ways you can be helped if you have suffered abuse or neglect.

To report elder abuse or neglect, please call the New York State Attorney General’s Office at (800) 771-7755 or the New York State Department of Health at (888) 201-4563.

The attorneys at Gallivan & Gallivan support the work of the MFCU and likewise are dedicated to protecting New York’s most vulnerable citizens. If you or a loved one has been the subjected to abuse or neglect in a nursing home or assisted living facility, please contact us. We aggressively pursue compensation for victims of elder abuse or neglect.
