Event description

Description

The St. Tammany SALT (Seniors And Law enforcement Together) Council and Louisiana Senior Medicare Patrol are partnering to present a workshop on Medicare Fraud and Abuse, including scams related to the new Medicare cards to be distributed in 2018. The event will be held September 15th from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Slidell City Auditorium, 2056 2nd Street in Slidell.

The event is part of the continuing series of workshops presented by SALT to help St. Tammany Senior Adults understand the fraud, abuse and waste that occurs within the Medicare program. The issuance of new Medicare cards that will not be tied to Social Security numbers is already resulting in scams that mark Seniors with potential for financial exploitation and identity theft. This is a new area for scammers, and they are already making significant efforts to defraud Seniors.

The event, which is possible because of a donation to the SALT Council by Peoples Health, will start at 10:00 AM with sign-in and a light mid-morning snack with PJ’s coffee followed by the first hour of the presentation starting at 10:30. There will be a break for lunch from Dickey’s BBQ at 11:30 followed by the last ½ hour presentation by SMP at 12:15. There will be drawings for door prizes and then Peoples Health will discuss the Medicare Advantage program they offer. The event will finish by 1:30 PM.

The SALT Council, SMP and Peoples Health encourage Seniors to take advantage of this opportunity to learn how to protect themselves and safeguard the Medicare program.

Space is limited, so pre-registration is required. Registration will close at 5:00 PM November 13th.
