Medicare Fraud Prevention Week Community

Medicare Fraud Prevention Week   Community

As a community, help by looking out for your older neighbors. When in public, be aware of older individuals purchasing gift cards in large amounts. If you see this, ask questions or mention gift card scams. You can report these types of scams to the @FTC. #MFPW #MFPWcommunity

As a community, how can you help prevent Medicare fraud, errors, or abuse? If you are out in public and overhear someone talking about Medicare, don’t be afraid to offer information about SMP and SHIP. These are trusted, unbiased government programs in every state ready to help Medicare beneficiaries, families, and caregivers. #MFPW #MFPWcommunity
