Someone offering you gifts or money to receive medical services or supplies. Remember Medical services are not Free. Medicare is charged. Read your Medicare Statement carefully. This statement is titled "Your Explaination of Medicare Benefits" and states "This is Not a Bill". Did you actually receive the services and or supplies that were billed to Medicare?
