Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Older Adults & Medicare Fraud Prevention
September 2014 | SAGE (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders)
“Each year, Medicare and Medicaid lose billions of dollars to improper claims—and as a Medicare beneficiary, this can affect you.”
Senior Medicare Patrols (SMPs) empower and assist Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse through outreach, counseling, and education. SAGE (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders) developed this handout to be given out to lesbian, gay and bisexual older adultsthat includes the SMP targeted messaging of "Protect, Detect, Report."
