Medicare and Health Insurance Scams

Who is eligible for Medicare? Generally Medicare is available to people 65 or over, younger people with disabilities and people with end stage renal disease ( Medicare has two parts: Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (Medicare insurance). There are eligibility requirements; which you can find online at (U.S. Department of Health & Human Services).

Why are we highlighting Medicare? There are many ways for crooks and financial scammers to find out your age, where you worked, if you paid taxes, where you live, and surmise if you are eligible for Medicare. Some scammers may pretend to be representatives of Medicare in an effort to coax personal information from their targets. Taking it to the next level, there are even reports of fake mobilized clinics where unlicensed services were performed and then Medicare was billed.
