Town Hall meeting aims to protect seniors against fraud


The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and Vermont authorities will be holding a town hall meeting with seniors and other members of the public on how to protect against health care fraud.

The event will take place Wednesday, April 22, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Brattleboro Senior Center.

Medicare and Medicaid experts and law enforcement agents will discuss common scams criminals use to get personal information, which they say often leads to identity theft.

Participants will have a chance to ask questions of the panelists.

After the meeting, volunteers will offer one-on-one counseling to seniors who think they have been the victims of fraud. — AP
