Medicare Phone Call Scam

There have been reports of people receiving calls from Social Security Administration or Medicare employees asking members for personal information. If you receive such a call, do not share this information.

•Social Security and Medicare employees will never make an unsolicited call, for any reason, to ask for banking or credit card information, or for a Social Security or Medicare number.

•Medicare cards do not cost anything—they are free. The Social Security Administration sends out a Medicare card when an individual first becomes eligible for Medicare. A new Medicare card may also be issued by Medicare officials due to a change in Part A or B eligibility, a legal name change, or a lost card.

•For helpful information on identifying and avoiding Medicare fraud, please visit www.StopMedicareFraud.gov.
If you suspect Medicare fraud, please call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).
