Kansas Medicare Scam

Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger is warning Kansas Medicare beneficiaries of a new phone scam. The caller, claiming to be a Medicare representative, reports that all Medicare beneficiaries will receiver either $200 or $150 per month to pay for prescription drugs. Then the caller asks to confirm their Medicare number and then asks for their bank account number.

Beneficiaries are reminded that Medicare representatives will never ask for a bank account number over the phone.

Whether you live in Kansas or not, please alert your parents of these scams that keep popping up. I was so proud of my mom recently. She had received a call asking for her Medicare number, but she told the caller to call me. He didn’t. Good for her!
