Learning how to read your Medicare Summary Notice


Did you know that one of the worst forms of Medicare graft, error and fraud is on Medicare Summary Notices?  That is why it is so important to understand how to read them.  The Senior Medicare Patrol in North Carolina Department of Insurance has already saved a huge amount of monies by catching the graft, error and fraud on the Summary Notices.


Medicare has made an easier-to-read form for billings services rendered.  The upcoming workshop is on March 28, at 10:30 AM at the Murphy Senior Center, 69 Alpine St, Murphy, NC 28906. 


There is no charge for any of the Medicare Workshops and the general public is invited, especially Medicare beneficiaries and their caregivers.

Be watching Cherokee County Website, Andrews Journal, Cherokee Scout and WKRK and TV Cable Station 25 for further workshops on Medicare issues.
