The Office of the Minnesota Attorney General is seeking a highly capable individual with the skills and drive to uncover, investigate, and stop fraudulent claims made to taxpayer-funded public health insurance programs.  This investigator makes a difference in the lives of vulnerable people and contributes to the economic well-being of Minnesotans and our state.

The investigator reviews complaints against public health care providers; evaluates and analyzes claims data, medical records, and financial records; conducts research, surveillance, and interviews; drafts reports summarizing investigative findings; and works with attorneys to prepare cases for prosecution.

  • Healthcare or nursing

Applicants should be proficient in Microsoft Office.  Fluency in Spanish, Hmong, Somali, or other relevant language for Minnesota is a plus, but not required. 

Why Work for Us? The Office of Attorney General Keith Ellison — one of Minnesota’s largest public law offices — has a clear mission:  We help Minnesotans afford their lives and live with dignity and respect.  We are a dynamic group of dedicated people who could all work elsewhere but choose public service as a calling, and we are actively building an internal culture that supports that calling.  We invite you to apply to be part of the team that helps recruit, support and train dedicated attorneys, legal assistants, investigators, and other staff, all focused on helping Minnesotans.

We offer a great benefits package!  The State of Minnesota offers a comprehensive benefits package including low cost medical and dental insurance, employer paid life insurance, short and long term disability, pre-tax flexible spending accounts, retirement plan, tax-deferred compensation, generous vacation and sick leave, and 11 paid holidays each year.
