Smart Card Talk : July 2012 : Volume 17 : Number 7

Medicare Needs Strong Authentication to Protect Privacy and Reduce Fraud

Dear members and friends of the Alliance,

Smart cards are a solution that addresses both fraud problems and privacy issues that currently drain the government-run Medicare system of $60 billion per year. Implementing a secure chip smart card would authenticate healthcare providers and beneficiaries, securely protect patient identification and save billions in abuse and waste, even based on the most conservative of estimates. I talk more about this in my letter in the July issue of Smart Card Talk. As always, thank you for your support of the Alliance.

Sincerely,

Randy Vanderhoof
Executive Director, Smart Card Alliance
