Santa Clarita senator to host webinar on Medicare fraud


In an effort to educate the public on the latest scams and trends throughout 2022, Sen. Scott Wilk, R-Santa Clarita, invites residents to attend his free Medicare Fraud webinar in April. .

In partnership with the Center for Health Care Rights, Senator Wilk’s office is hosting a free webinar via zoom in April to protect the public and their loved ones from internet fraud and identity theft.

“Each year, millions of healthcare dollars are lost to fraud and abuse,” Wilk said. “These inappropriate behaviors increase the cost of health care and pose safety risks to Medicare beneficiaries.”

The seminar should alert Santa Clarita residents to red flags of fraud as well as tips and trends on the latest scams, according to Wilk’s office.

The webinar on health insurance fraud follows a similar initiative hosted by MP Suzette Martinez-Valladares in March that focused on illegal internet lending and “darling scams”.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has been a boon for fraudsters and scammers,” Valladares said. “As we work in the Legislative Assembly to crack down on these criminals, it’s also important for us to learn how to protect ourselves, which means protecting our personal information.”

Senator Wilk’s zoom event is scheduled for 1-2 p.m. Thursday, April 14 via zoom.
