SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Officials from all 50 states will be in Utah this week for a training conference on preventing Medicaid fraud and investigating patient neglect.

Each state is required to have a Medicaid Fraud Control Unit to serve as the law enforcement arm of the system. More than 250 officials from those units will get training and have discussions with state and federal regulators through Thursday at the Sheraton Hotel in Salt Lake City.

Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes says millions of dollars are lost every year to Medicaid fraud.
