As part of its continuing seminar series on topics of critical importance to seniors, the AMAC Foundation is collaborating with Florida’s Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) to present a community outreach event designed to help “Stop Fraud in its Tracks.” The seminar is held in conjunction with SMP’s Health Care Fraud Prevention Program, a public service initiative to enlist seniors and other community members in detecting and preventing scams, improper payments, and other illegal practices that are fraudulently draining an estimated $65 billion each year from the funds available for their healthcare.
The AMAC Foundation is a non-profit organization focused totally on the needs of America’s seniors, and is collaborating with Florida’s Senior Medicare Patrol to help spread the word about the dramatically high cost of Medicare fraud. The seminar will focus on protecting personal information, detecting errors occurring in the Medicare payment stream, and detecting scams and deceptive practices, and will explain the proper ways to report suspected health care fraud.
The one and a half hour program has been scheduled for Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at the Sumter County Library at Pinellas Plaza in The Villages, and is open to the public. The program will begin at 10:00 am, and will be held in Room 102 at the library, 7375 Powell Road, Wildwood, FL 34785.
Join us for what promises to be a highly informative session aimed squarely at helping protect the health care benefits you’ve earned. It’s a big problem, one that the FBI has estimated plagues between 3% and 10% of all Medicare billings. We’re all in this together, so let’s join forces and fight the problem!
There is no fee to attend this seminar and, by the way, light snacks will be served!
Deadline for registration: Friday, October 13, 2017 at 5:00 pm.
