Identity theft impacts Medicare and can lead to higher health care costs 

Don’t let anybody steal your identity. Current fraud schemes to be on the lookout for include:

  • People using your Medicare or health plan member number for reimbursements of services you never received
  • People calling you to ask for your Medicare or health plan numbers
  • People trying to bribe you to use a doctor you don’t know to get services you may not need

You can protect your identity and your benefits. Never give out your Social Security, Medicare, health plan numbers, or banking information to someone you don’t know.
Carefully review your Plan Statement to ensure all the information is correct.

Know that free services do not require you give your plan or Medicare number to
anyone. If you suspect fraud, report it immediately. Call 1-877-7SAFERX
