• Oncore Consulting with Pondera and Lexis-Nexis Win California Medi-Cal Fraud Award

    March 16th, 2016 by admin Categories: Blogs Tags: , , , ,

    The Medi-Cal Program Integrity Data Analytics (MPIDA) procurement team today announced an award to Oncore Consulting of Folsom, CA.  The purpose of the MPIDA program is to detect and link fraud schemes in the Medi-Cal environment.

    It is expected that the Oncore team will produce reports identifying suspicious cases in order to create an infrastructure for use by DHCS investigators so the Department can more readily identify providers which should be suspended or prosecuted.

    Medi-Cal with a current budget of over $90 billion in combined state and federal funds is the largest component of the state budget. Fraud estimates including ones by the U.S Governmental Accountability Office may run as high as 10-20%.

    This new DHCS initiative will be the state’s first aggressive, Medi-Cal-wide attempt to address massive, potentially billion dollar fraud schemes in California.

    Oncore teamed with Pondera Solutions of Gold River, CA and LexisNexis Special Services Inc. of Washington, DC.
