Medicare Fraud Prevention Week Beneficiaries
The most effective way to stop fraud from occurring is to prevent it in the first place. Educating yourself and your loved ones on how to prevent Medicare fraud, errors, and abuse is the best place to start.
Remember the three steps from the SMP: Prevent, Detect, Report!
Prevent: Open and read your MSNs. Detect: Look for anything out of the ordinary, double charges, or services you don’t recognize.
Report: Contact the SMP for questions or concerns.
Find your local SMP at www.smpresource.org.
