Recognizing Medicare fraud is very important. Here are some examples:
- A provider that bills Medicare for services or supplies they never gave you, like charging you for a visit you never had;
- A provider that charges Medicare twice for a service or item that you only received once;
- A person who steals your Medicare number or card and uses it to submit fraudulent claims in your name;
- A company that offers you a Medicare drug plan that Medicare has not approved.
