BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - We’ve all heard of Medicare scams costing Vermont seniors millions, but there are resources to help seniors avoid a financial nightmare.

Darren Perron spoke with Michelle Kessler with the group Community of Vermont Elders to discuss services available to seniors to prevent Medicare or any type of health insurance fraud.
