Gov. Bob Riley, at a recent press conference with Alabama Department of Senior Services Commissioner Irene Collins, U. S. Office of Consumer Choice and Protection Director Barbara Dieker and Alabama Association for Justice (formerly the Alabama Trial Lawyers Association) President-Elect Gibson Vance, announced a new campaign to fight Medicare fraud. 

The project is made possible by a $75,000 grant from the Alabama Association for Justice’s (ALAJ) designated charity organization the Alabama Civil Justice Foundation (ACJF). The funding for this program comes from attorneys’ IOLTAs, or Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts, and personal donations from attorneys.

From these funds, 100,000 information packets will be printed and distributed to Medicare recipients around Alabama so they can protect their Medicare and hold fraudulent healthcare providers accountable. In addition, volunteers around the state will also be available for assistance.

"Medicare fraud is a terrible injustice, one that preys upon Alabama’s precious senior citizens," Vance said. "Injustice in any form is wrong, but the members of the Alabama Association for Justice and the Alabama Civil Justice Foundation feel a special calling when that wrong is committed against the young or the elderly, who are all too often helpless, in defending themselves."
