Seniors: Fight Fraud in Medicare Billing

Did you know that $1 out of every $7 spent on Medicare is paid inappropriately due to error, fraud, or abuse? This costs all Americans money - in higher taxes, higher premiums, and a decrease of available Medicare services. It is also a dishonor to our elderly family and friends.
elderly2The South Central Tennessee Development District's Area Agency on Aging & Disability is offering Senior Citizens help fighting Medicare and TennCare fraud, waste, and abuse. The program is called the Senior Medicare Patrol Project.

The Senior Medicare Patrol Project has a toll-free phone number staffed by caring, knowledgeable people. Seniors or their caregivers can call with questions about accuracy of Medicare and TennCare bills. Staff members will then follow up to help correct the bills. There is no cost for the confidential service. The number is 1-877/801-0044.
