Medicare Fraud

April 11, 1997

In the last year and a half I have received three notices from Medicare for services rendered by doctors, two from New York and one from Massachusetts.

I have been in neither of these states for several years, but I seem to have undergone extensive treatments, spinal taps, brain scans, etc. Needless to say, these are fraudulent claims, for several thousands of dollars.

I notified Medicare authorities immediately, and they assured me that they would investigate. The purpose of this letter is to alert Medicare recipients to double-check all notices. If there is any question or doubt, call immediately.

Social Security and Medicare are our right. We must do all we can to protect them.
