Medicare Urges Seniors to Join the Fight Against Fraud

In mailboxes across the country, people with Medicare will soon see a redesigned statement of their claims for services and benefits. The new statement will help them better spot potential fraud, waste, and abuse.  Because of actions like these, the number of suspect providers and suppliers thrown out of the Medicare program has more than doubled in 35 states. The redesigned notice will make it easier for people with Medicare to understand their benefits, file an appeal if a claim is denied, and spot claims for services they never received. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will send the notices to Medicare beneficiaries on a quarterly basis.
