Learn about the Delaware Senior Medicare Patrol Program

Georgetown, DE (March 5, 2013) If you have Medicare, or know someone who does, you will want to attend the next meeting of the Sussex County Advisory Committee for the Aging & Adults with Physical Disabilities on Monday, March 18. The meeting will feature a presentation on Delaware’s Senior Medicare Patrol Program.

The meeting will begin at 10 a.m. at the Laurel Senior Center, 113 N. Central Ave. in Laurel. Cheryl Hollis and Sandy Quillen of the Delaware Division of Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities will provide a presentation about the Senior Medicare Patrol Program.

Delaware’s Senior Medicare Patrol Program provides public information to Medicare recipients, and also trains retired persons to help other Medicare recipients get the information they need when they suspect fraud, waste, or abuse of the federally funded Medicare program.

The Sussex County Advisory Committee for the Aging & Adults with Physical Disabilities is an 11-member panel established by the Sussex County Council to be an advocate for programs and policies that benefit older and disabled residents. The committee meets every other month, in January, March, May, July, September and November. All meetings are open to the public.

The Advisory Committee’s mission is to increase dialogue, make recommendations to Sussex County Council, and to give support, assistance and advice on significant issues and programs that may affect the lives of the county’s aging and adults with physical disabilities populations.
