TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas residents who receive Medicare benefits will soon be seeing new information on their claim statements.

Shawn Sullivan, state secretary of aging and disability services, said Monday it's part of an effort by the federal Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services to reduce waste, fraud and abuse in the health care system.

The statements will provide clearer information about the benefits residents are entitled to receive and the services that have been rendered. The statements will also provide information if a claim is denied or if one was filed for services that they didn't receive.

Residents should start seeing the new summaries in June and Sullivan is encouraging Medicare recipients to read them closely.
