Welcome Elliott Greenblott back to The Manchester Community Library for the third installment of his Fraud Watch series – this time taking a hard look at Medicare Fraud.
Annually, 65 billion dollars is lost to Medicare Fraud that could be applied to extended benefits and reduced taxpayer liability. Learn how Medicare fraud drains resources from health care and individual pockets. The presentation also addresses how beneficiaries can fight fraud and help reduce Medicare expenses. Discover how habits and behaviors put you at risk. Recognize the strategies and tactics used by con artists to defraud. Know and practice the most effective prevention strategies to avoid becoming a victim, recognize the “red flags”. Learn how to access and share up-to-date information about fraud identification and prevention and where to go if you or someone you love has been a victim.
Elliot Greenblott is the Coordinator of The Fraud Watch Network at AARP Vermont. He provides educational programs throughout Vermont and neighboring states on fraud and scams and has been published recently in The Brattleboro Reformer, The Berkshire Eagle, The Bennington Banner, and The Manchester Journal.
