Seniors learn how to fight fraud

Oklahoma seniors can learn how to fight fraud at 10 free conferences hosted by the Oklahoma Insurance Department. The seminars are scheduled in cities and towns all over the state from May to July.

“Our seniors should be protected from scammers,” Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak said. “These Senior Fraud Conferences will arm them with the information and skills they need to recognize fraud and act accordingly.”

Conference topics include Medicare fraud, insurance and funeral trust fraud, investment fraud, banking fraud and current senior scams. Each seminar is free for seniors and includes breakfast. Insurance professionals can attend a conference for four hours of Continuing Education (CE) credit. The cost for CE credit is $30.

The conferences are partially funded by the Administration on Community Living’s Senior Medicare Patrol grant. To attend, register online at map.oid.ok.gov or call 800-763-2828.
