Protect Our Seniors
By CarePatrol of Chicago Northshore
During the coronavirus emergency, con artists like to take advantage of seniors when they are distracted by trying to obtain their Medicare number or other personal information. It is important to protect this information so seniors do not become victims of Medicare or identity fraud.
- Medicare will never call to sell you anything such as N95 masks or hand sanitizer.
- Medicare will never visit your home to deliver items or collect money.
- Medicare will never call to get your Medicare number or any other personal info unless you called them first.
- If you get a call from Medicare promising you home food delivery or anything else if you give them information - hang up!
If you are a senior, be alert and review your Medicare claims and summaries! If you love a senior, get engaged, talk to them about potential fraud schemes and report anything suspicious.
If you suspect fraud, call 1-800-MEDICARE.
