Miramar, FL, August 06, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Trinity Heath Care Services has recently announced that they have partnered with Senior Medicare Patrol in order to combat Medicare fraud within the senior community in South Florida. As an organization, the Senior Medicare Patrol’s primary goal is to educate Medicare beneficiaries on how to protect their personal identity, identify and report errors on their health care bills and identify deceptive health practices. Considered one of South Florida’s leading home health care agencies, Trinity Health Care Services offer a wide array of healthcare solutions and educational services to their clients across the area.
With Medicare fraud rising in South Florida, and the United States government losing billions of dollars per year due to fraud related activities, it is hoped that this collaboration will help both organizations to ensure that more federal resources are available in future to help seniors in need of healthcare.
Through this link-up Senior Medicare Patrol will send their volunteers to local area retirement communities to instruct Medicare beneficiaries on how to protect their personal information, assess pricing on medical equipment and closely review their benefits statement in order to pinpoint miscalculations. The Senior Medicare Patrol will also teach local area seniors about potential scams and act as an advice bureau that South Florida seniors can contact should they feel that they are the victim of fraudulent billing practices.
For both Senior Medicare Patrol and Trinity Health Care Services, protecting at-risk seniors is their number one prerogative. This new initiative will help both organizations to continue that mission-critical goal and ensure that all seniors get the care they require.
