Medicare fraud and abuse are real. Every year, American taxpayers lose nearly $60 billion to outright scams, improper payments, and other illegal practices that drain money from health care programs that provide vital health care services to millions of seniors. The Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP), smpresource.org, is a group of highly trained volunteers who help Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries avoid, detect, and prevent health care fraud. SMP volunteers teach Medicare beneficiaries how to protect their personal information, identify and report errors on their health care statements, recognize scams — such as illegal marketing, providing unnecessary services, and charging for services that were not provided— and report fraud and abuse to the proper authorities. Topics include:

  • Warning signs of potential fraud
  • Current Medicare fraud schemes
  • How to review a Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) for fraudulent charges
  • Tips to prevent fraud of your Medicare number

Box lunches will be provided for $10 with a reservation. There is no charge to attend without eating. To make a reservation, please contact Marianne Wilson (mwilson@myfumc.org) at 817/339-5071.
