New Tools to Fight Fraud and Protect Your Medicare Benefits in 2011

The Federal Government is on a mission to protect you and your health information with Medicare.  This is always something good to see if you are trying to protect yourself from all possible security issues as your Medicare information has some personal information involved.  As Medicare puts in more tools to help protect you and the system we take a look to see what has been done.

  • The new law contains important new tools to help crack down on criminals seeking to scam seniors and steal taxpayer dollars.  Nothing could be both more necessary and respected than protecting our senior population.
  • It reduces payment errors, waste, fraud, and abuse to make Medicare more efficient and return savings to the Trust Fund to strengthen Medicare for years to come.  Making Medicare more efficient to be able to last longer is good news for all ages.
  • You are an important resource in the fight against fraud. Be vigilant and rely only on your trusted sources of information about your Medicare benefits.  Remember that sometimes you are the only one that can see something is going on, report what you see regardless of the implications.
  • Call 1-800-MEDICARE if you have any questions or want to report something that seems like fraud.  This is a great option to have when you don’t know what else to do.
