This video from CARIE's Healthcare Fraud Education Project examines the price older Americans must pay when healthcare fraud -- particularly in the cases of Medicare and Medicaid, government health insurance plans that primarily protect senior citizens -- goes unchecked.

Should you balk when your doctor offers to pay you for every Medicare or Medicaid eligible patient you refer? Why were you billed not once, but twice, for services you never received? What should you say when a friend asks to use your Medicare card?

This upbeat and engaging program is a collaboration between 10 local film and video makers and a surprising and dedicated cast of individuals who work in the field of AIDS/HIV healthcare and activism. The video stems from Scribe's 1995 call for local videomakers to shoot "a day in the life of" AIDS/HIV caregivers, advocates and activists, in observance of world AIDS day.

"I just love that place. It's a haven," a woman says with a joyous smile as the video opens. Featuring exuberant testamonials from HIV positive members of the We The People "family," this doumentary short lovingly documents a unique HIV and AIDS-themed social service agency located within shouting distance of City Hall. We The People, an organization run by and for people with HIV, has produced a moving video which documents the organization's efforts to emotionally, socially and economically empower people with the HIV-virus.

Filmmaker's Bio: 

<"http://www.peoplewithaids.org">We the People Living with AIDS of the Delaware Valley is the only Philadelphia-based organization created and run by people living with HIV disease and AIDS. This organization serves as the major link to the larger medical and social services for the growing number of people with HIV/AIDS, many of whom are disenfranchised because of their own behavior or because of discrimination based on race, mental illness, substance abuse, income status, sexual preferences, lifestyles, etc. We The People does this by offering practical support services that our target population tells us that they need: diagnostic and medical services, meals, clothing, social connections, peer and professional substance abuse and mental health counseling and referrals, culturally appropriate HIV/AIDS risk reduction education, referrals to other services, and now a housing and recovery house.

Janet Williams works as a digital video artist and graphic designer in the Philadelphia area.

Cindy Wong has been a production facilitator for other Scribe projects including Face to Face and To the Point.
