Education Programs through the Senior Medicare Patrol program are available in Des Moines, Henry, Lee and Louisa Counties. Senior Medicare Patrol is sponsored by Southeast Iowa Area Agency on Aging, Inc. and it is a nationwide program administered in part through the U. S. Administration on Aging. Brenda Sayre with the SE IA Area Agency on Aging says trained retired professionals provide community education programs about Medicare fraud, waste and abuse along with identity theft and scams to elders and their caregivers, local banks, home health agencies and service groups. She says community education is free and they like to set-up informational booths at health fairs, seminars and other places the public would gather. To schedule a program or ask questions: call SE IA Area Agency on Aging at 1-800-292-1268 or 319-752-5433.
