(WIBW) -- Medicare is taking more steps to inform seniors of the dangers of fraud.
People with Medicare will receive a statement of their claim services that will make them easier to understand, so that they can better identify possible fraud scams.
The Medicare summary notice will come throughout the month of June and the goal is to have each Medicare user more aware of their rights, services and benefits. By becoming more aware, they can tell if a false agency or person is trying to scam them.
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service, the Obama Administration has recovered about $15 billion in health care fraud settlements and judgments.
