NASO: National Association of SURS Officials
NASO was begun in 1985 by staff from the various states’ Medicaid agencies. The purpose of NASO is to assist states in providing the greatest control of fraud or abuse for the national Medicaid program. Strong program integrity helps assure that Medicaid funds are channeled appropriately to those who need the services.
From those early days, NASO has grown to an organization of state and federal officials from the 50 states whose primary task is to investigate instances of fraud & abuse in the Medicaid Medical Assistance Program. NASO’S membership currently consists of attorneys, nurses, contractors, investigators, managed cared staff, managers, pharmacists and others
