Stop Fraudsters in Their Tracks!

A Fraudster Loves to Take Advantage

Unsuspecting Medicare recipients may seem like an easy target for scammers, but you’ll be ready for them.  When someone gives you a call asking for your info, and it seams fishy, it’s because it likely is!

At HomeTown Insurance & Financial Services, we want our clients (and all the other good people out there) to be prepared to handle situations where someone might be trying to play you for a fool. 

We know you’re smarter than that!  Keep reading for a few tips to stop Medicare fraud.

Straight from Medicare.gov, here are three tips to help 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
