Transgender Older Adults & Medicare Fraud Prevention
September 2014 | SAGE (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders), FORGE Transgender Aging Network
“The word “fraud” is a loaded one for many transgender people, as sometimes those who do not understand about gender identity have falsely accused transgender people of trying to “deceive” or “defraud” people about their “real” identity. We know this could not be further from the truth.”
SAGE (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders) and FORGE Transgender Aging Network developed this handout to be given out to transgender older adults as part of the Senior Medicare Patrol volunteer program. It provides information about specific issues related to Medicare fraud protection and the transgender community.
