Be Alert for COVID-19 Scammers

Scammers may use the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to steal your identity and commit Medicare fraud. In some cases, they might tell you they’ll send a Coronavirus test, masks, or other items in exchange for your Medicare Number or personal information. Don’t fall for it; it’s a scam.

It’s important to always guard your Medicare Number and check your Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) for errors. Only give your Medicare Number to participating Medicare pharmacists, primary and specialty care doctors, or people you trust to work with Medicare on your behalf. Remember, Medicare will never call you to verify your Medicare Number.

Visit Medicare.gov/fraud for more information on protecting yourself from fraud and reporting suspected fraud, and watch the short video below.
