Program Integrity (Fraud Info)

In an effort to promote honesty and public confidence in the government and the public assistance benefits it is responsible for issuing, Kenosha County Economic Support investigates allegations of fraud and abuse related to Medicaid, Badger Care, Food Share, Child Care Assistance and related programs. Allegations may include community members who are receiving aid, vendors, child care providers or others. Employees and members of the public who report allegations of misconduct are essential to minimizing instances of fraud and abuse in our public assistance programs. Examples of potential fraud include:

  • Sharing Food Share / Quest cards.
  • Selling Food Share benefits for cash, drugs and other items (i.e., trafficking).
  • Not reporting accurate household income to the agency.
  • Not reporting accurate household members to the agency.
  • Receiving benefits in more than one state at the same time.
  • Falsifying verifications or documentation to the agency to qualify for benefits.

You can report potential fraud to the Kenosha County Economic Support Department by contacting our Fraud Hotline at 262-697-4626 or by using the form below.

When making a report, please provide as much information as possible such as the person’s name or business name, address, phone number, dates and times you’ve witnessed alleged fraudulent activity, other people in the household, other witnesses to the alleged fraudulent activity and any other information that may assist in the fraud investigation. We ask that you provide your contact information and/or you may choose to remain anonymous when you make your report. Keep in mind that all information is kept confidential including the results or the outcome of our investigations.

Thank you for your interest and your help to insure that public assistance benefits are going to the right people within our community!
