Empowers seniors to prevent health care fraud

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today announced that Hawkeye Valley Area Agency on Aging will receive a $177,927 grant for their Senior Medicare Patrol project. The project empowers seniors across Iowa to prevent, detect and report health care fraud. Medicare and Medicaid recipients are served by this project.

“I’m happy to announce that the Hawkeye Valley Area on Aging has been awarded a grant for their Senior Medicare Patrol project.,” Braley said.  “Health care fraud is a problem in Iowa and across the country. Empowering Iowa seniors who rely on Medicare and Medicaid with the tools to prevent, detect and report fraud is important to ensure that Iowans are getting the health care services they need while taxpayer dollars are safeguarded.”

 

The funding was awarded through the Administration on Aging, a division of the US Department of Health and Human Services.
