Be Aware of Scams
There are a variety of scam telephone calls directed at older adults that impersonate Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and benefit programs. DO NOT give personal information to these callers. Please report these incidences to the MMAP office at 231-733-3572 or 1-800-803-7174, or the Office of Inspector General Fraud Hotline at 1-800-447-8477.
MMAP is a free service which is funded by grants from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services – the Administration for Community Living, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and the Michigan ACLS Bureau. MMAP does not receive funding from, nor is it affiliated with, any insurance companies.
Long Term Care Ombudsman Program
The Michigan Long Term Care Ombudsman Program was created in 1972 to improve the quality of care and quality of life experienced by individuals that live in licensed long term care facilities (nursing homes, homes for the aged/assisted living facilities and adult foster care homes).
The Ombudsman serves as an advocate for those who reside in a long term care facility and is guided by a resident’s or their family’s concerns. The service is strictly confidential and funded by federal and state funds. There is no cost to the resident or their family.
To contact an Ombudsman for Muskegon, Oceana, and Ottawa counties, contact:
