Free Information Fair offers Medicare fraud prevention tips

The Better Business Bureau Education Foundation will be promoting a Medicare fraud prevention program at The Information Fair on Wednesday, February 24, 2010, from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. on the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds, Building C, located at 4310 Highway 36 South in Rosenberg.

Attendees can expect to receive free information and learn how to recognize possible Medicare fraud, such as:

  • A health care provider bills Medicare for services you never got.
  • A supplier bills Medicare for equipment you never got.
  • Someone uses another person’s Medicare card to get medical care, supplies, or equipment.
  • Someone bills Medicare for home medical equipment after it has been returned.
  • A company offers a Medicare drug plan that hasn’t been approved by Medicare.
  • A company uses false information to mislead you into joining a Medicare plan.


In addition to the BBB’s Medicare fraud prevention program, there will be a variety of non-profit and government agencies/organizations sharing resources to meet your needs. Some of those services include:

  • Assistance for homeless families
  • Project Grow-ECI is providing evaluation and assessment services to children less than 36 months old.
  • Lamar Consolidated ISD will be providing a list of programs and services available to parents and students.

For more information on this great opportunity, or to find out about other agencies that will be available to help you solve your family issues whether it be housing, financial, parenting or any other issue call 281-342-3034.
