Program Description


What you don’t know about fraud can and will hurt you.

Federal Trade Commission data shows that consumers reported losing more than $5.8 billion to fraud in 2022, an increase of more than 70 percent over the previous year. The percentage is expected to be even higher in 2024. The amount of scam calls you get and pressure by the bad guys is only going to increase.  Learn how to protect yourself and loved ones from Medicare fraud!  Empower yourself and others to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud, errors, and abuse.

In partnership with Senior Advocacy Services Medicare Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) and the California Department of Aging.

HICAP provides free and unbiased Medicare information & counceling so you can make informed decisions. HICAP does not sell anything and is the only source authorized by the CA Dept. of Aging to provide Medicare education.
