Fraud Alert: Nationwide Brace Scam

April 10, 2019

Scammers are offering Medicare beneficiaries orthotic braces that are supposedly free to them and covered by Medicare. If a beneficiary has received unwanted or unneeded braces and that equipment is billed to Medicare, then Medicare may deny a brace that the beneficiary needs in the future.
