Medicare Fraud Bingo is a beneficiary outreach activity that has been very successful in Maine. In many parts of the state, senior groups and organizations will specifically request Medicare Bingo rather than a presentation. This version of Medicare Bingo contains specific "factoids" relating to potential errors, fraud and abuse. When a number is drawn, the factoid is read (either by the game facilitator or by an audience member). Audiences learn facts about Medicare errors, fraud and abuse while enjoying the game. Inexpensive prizes are given to the winnters. Two files are included: The first is the "Master" file, which can be printed, cut and used as the "draw" numbers for the game. The second file are 20 playing cards. [English] [File size: 50 KB]
