Fraud and Scam

State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP)

The State Health Insurance Assistance Program provides free, impartial health insurance information for people with Medicare. SHIP can help answer questions regarding Medicare, Medicare Supplement Insurance, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, long-term care insurance, prescription coverage, and low-income assistance. 

Senior Medicare Patrol

LifeStream works to educate seniors and others at-risk individuals against the dangers of becoming a victim of fraud or scams. As participants in Senior Medicare Patrol, LifeStream offers a hotline for the community to reach out if they believe they are a fraud victim, as well as education at community events and presentations.

Join us in educating others about Senior Medicare Fraud. Volunteers join us at events, senior centers or other locations where seniors gather to provide information on how to stay safe from fraud, scams and abuse. Comprehensive online training is provided at your convenience. This opportunity provides a challenging and rewarding experience with flexible hours.
