Protect yourself from Medicare fraud
Did you know that $60 to $90 billion of our tax dollars are lost to Medicare fraud each year? Come meet Maria Pimentel, a representative of the Massachusetts Senior Medicare Patrol (MA SMP) Program on Monday, June 24, 2019, at 1:15 p.m. at the Acushnet Memory Café at the Acushnet Public Library, 232 Middle Rd., Acushnet, MA 02743, and participate in a discussion on how to prevent, detect, and report healthcare errors, fraud and abuse.
This free information workshop will provide you with the tools to become a more informed and engaged health care consumer including information about the new Medicare cards. Although new cards have random numbers and no longer Social Security numbers, you still need to be vigilant and protect yourself from becoming victim to deceptive marketing and medical identity theft.
If you cannot attend this workshop but have questions about your healthcare bills, Medicare Summary Notices, or other health insurance explanation of benefits statements, please call the MA SMP Program office at 1-800-892-0890. This event is brought to you by the MA Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) Program. The MA SMP Program is funded in part by grant number 90-MPPG 0051-01-00 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Community Living, Washington, DC. For more information please call 508-998-0280.
