Did you know that each year, Medicare loses billions of dollars as a result of fraud, waste and abuse?  If you’re like most Medicare beneficiaries, you’ve probably had questions about your Medicare statements, called Summary Notices, and have often wondered what all of those numbers and codes mean.  Sometimes it’s difficult to tell whether you are being billed correctly for the services you’ve received.  That’s why AARP has developed new tools to help you better understand your Medicare statements and to help save the program money by identifying and reporting fraud and abuse.
