Medicare volunteers

The Area Agency on Aging is seeking volunteers to be trained in preventing health care fraud, with an emphasis on the rollout of new Medicare cards.

A training class is scheduled for Jan. 11. Anyone interested should call volunteer coordinator Janice Mancherian at 292-1871 by Jan. 4.

From April 2018 through April 2019, Medicare will be rolling out new Medicare Cards, which no longer use the beneficiary’s Social Security number. This will help prevent future Medicare fraud and identity theft, but fraud may still occur before and during the distribution of the new card. The Area Agency on Aging is already receiving calls concerning fraud regarding the new Medicare Cards.

Scammers are asking for bank account or credit card numbers to pay for shipping and handling of the new cards.

The agency reminds Medicare recipients that no one will call before sending new cards.

Submit items in printed or typed form to Briefly, P.O. Box 2588, Waco 76702-2588; fax to 757-0302; or email items to
