Services Provided: Applications may be requested in person or by telephone, but must be submitted in writing. Call the 2-1-1 Idaho CareLine to have an application packet mailed (dial 2-1-1 or 1-800-926-2588). Self-Reliance programs include:

**Cash Assistance (TAFI, Temporary Assistance for Families in Idaho) provides cash assistance to low income families with children. Adults have a 24-month lifetime limit. Adult participants must seek employment, training, or educational opportunities as a condition of eligibility. Pregnant women with no other children will be eligible for TAFI only if there is a medical condition that prevents work and they are in the last trimester of pregnancy. Unmarried minors with children will be required to live at home with the minor's parents unless good cause exists.

** Food Stamps provide food benefits necessary for good health and nutrition to low-income households and to stabilize seasonal and low-income labor markets.

**Child Care. The Idaho Child Care Program (ICCP) subsidizes child care costs of low-income families who are working, looking for work, attending training or educational programs, or need preventive services. Qualifying families will then be directed to the ICCP referral program, to be linked with a licensed childcare provider. Dial 2-1-1 or 1-800-926-2588. Benefits are based on a sliding-fee scale.

**Idaho Medicaid Benefit Plans. Medicaid now does more to improve your health, find new health problems early, and manage current health problems. If you are eligible for Medicaid, you will get benefits based on your health needs. The following are the plans available and benefits that you will receive with each one of them.
- Medicaid Basic Plan. - it is for healthy low-income children and adults with eligible dependent children. This plan provides complete health, prevention, and wellness benefits for children and adults who don't have special health needs. Most Medicaid participants will be enrolled in this benefit plan.
- Medicaid Enhanced Plan. - It is for individuals with disabilities or special health needs. This plan includes all the benefits in the Basic Plan, plus additional benefits.

Existing programs will continue to remain in place after July, 2006:
1. The Pregnant Women and Children (PWC) plan provides medical assistance for qualifying women with medically verified pregnancy.
2. ''CHIP'' as a benefit plan (both CHIP A and CHIP B) is no longer a current name. Children who are eligible for the new plans because they fall within the income brackets for the State Children's Health Insurance Program (Title XXI), will be enrolled in Idaho Medicaid and one of the two above mentioned benefit plans.
3. Qualified Medicare Beneficiary Plan (QMB) limited to Medicare paid services only.

**The Children's Access Card is a premium assistance program administered in partnership with Idaho insurance carriers. An eligible child qualifies for up to $100 per month in premium assistance or up to $300 per month for families with three or more children.

**Aid to the Aged, Blind, and Disabled (AABD) provides cash assistance and medical coverage to Idahoans with low-income who are 65 years of age or older, or are blind or disabled (disability must be verified by the Social Security Administration).

**Telephone Assistance. A program for the elderly, low income, or disabled (based on income) which helps pay telephone installation costs and monthly telephone service. To apply, you must complete an application at your local Health and Welfare office or Community Action Agency.

Services Provided: The Fraud Investigation Unit investigates fraud and abuse within the Medicaid program by monitoring and reviewing provider billing practices, and reviewing provider records to support services billed to the program. The Fraud Investigations Unit investigates Department-wide allegations of fraud to include Medicaid providers, Welfare programs, contractors, and they conduct Department internal investigations. The Fraud Unit has out-stationed investigators to respond to the statewide investigative need. They work with other state and federal agencies to investigate and prosecute providers and clients identified as defrauding the Medicaid and Welfare programs.

Welfare Fraud
Fraud and abuse significantly impacts the welfare programs by using up valuable dollars necessary to help eligible children and adults.

Fraud and abuse is actively pursued by Fraud Investigators within Health and Welfare. They investigate allegations of fraud being committed in Idaho Child Care Program (ICCP), Food Stamps, cash, medical, WIC and energy assistance. They initiate administrative, civil and criminal action against persons who abuse or commit fraud in the various welfare programs.

What is Welfare Fraud?
Welfare fraud is any intentional action which causes a participant or provider to receive benefits to which they are not entitled.

Common Fraud Schemes
*Providing false or incomplete information to the Department at application or re-certification.
*Failing to report changes.
*Submitting a false or fraudulent document to the Department in order to get benefits.
*Transferring, hiding or giving away assets in order to be eligible to receive benefits.
*ICCP providers billing for children not seen.

Report Welfare Fraud
Fraud and abuse of public programs affects all of us. Everyone can take responsibility to report fraud and abuse. There are three ways to report fraud and abuse of taxpayer money:

1. Call toll-free at 1-866-635-7515 - the Fraud Hotline rings into 2-1-1 for initial concern documentation.
2. E-mail a fraud complaint to: welfraud@dhw.idaho.gov; or
3. Fax or mail a fraud complaint to:
Fax a complaint form at 1-208-334-0686 or
Mail to: Welfare Fraud Investigations Unit, P. O. Box 83720, Boise, ID 83720-0036
If you are filling out a form, provide us with as much detail as possible and a contact name, phone number or e-mail address. This will help us if we have additional questions regarding the information you submit.
