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?
