🛑 Stop Medicare fraud

As we are preparing for 2024 Open Enrollment here is an Important Message from Medicare.gov: FRAUD and ABUSE can happen anywhere, and usually results in higher health care costs and taxes for everyone



The best way to stop Medicare fraud? Help prevent it in the first place. Follow these 3 tips to protect yourself from scammers:

  1. If you get a call, text or email asking for your Medicare Number, don't respond. Don't give your Medicare card or Medicare Number to anyone except your doctor or people you know should have it. Remember, Medicare will never call you unprompted and ask you for your personal information.

  2. Check your Medicare Summary Notices (MSNs) or claims statements carefully. If you see a charge for a service you didn't get or a product you didn't order (like a COVID-19 over-the-counter test), it may be fraud.

  3. If you suspect fraud, report it at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). Visit Medicare.gov, the official source for Medicare information, to learn more about preventing Medicare fraud.
