MediScams Alert

While we've been following the Richard West Medicaid whistle-blower case, it's easy to forget that a lot more folks (and providers) may be at risk of fraud.

Christine Seivers sent me the link to her post on an even dozen Medicare scams, and how you can avoid them.

Here's a sample:

"One of the more common ways criminals scam those with Medicare is by posing as Medicare employees, health care practitioners, or insurance representatives, something many may not be expecting. These fraudsters call, email, or send a letter ... remember that federal employees, working for Medicare or otherwise, will never phone or email you to get bank or Medicare information."

Do check it out, and pass it along.
