A Medicaid anti-fraud bill unanimously passed through the Oregon Senate Health Care and Human Services Committee - that could potentially save the state tens of millions of dollars each year. 

 

With Senator Tim Knopp's leadership, SB 753 already has 18 bipartisan sponsors in the Senate and now heads to the floor for a vote.

 

He says the current system operates on a "pursuit and chase" model, where they find the fraud after the money is paid out.

 

"Talking about thousands and thousands of payments on a monthly basis. And so we want to make sure that through current database technology and technology that exists today, that they can use that to run it through the system before the payments go out."

 

Knopp says there are already companies the state can work with that use  programs to stop a fraudulent claim before it's paid, potentially saving the state millions.
