Beware of Medicare Part D Scammers


The new enrollment period for Medicare’s prescription drug plan has opened the door for scam artists.

In the latest swindle, the con calls a senior and claims to be with Medicare and informs the senior, he/she must provide bank account information in order for a debit to be made from the senior’s account to ensure the senior receives their new prescription drug card.

A spokesperson for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reminds all seniors a legitimate representative from an approved Part D plan provider will never call and ask for personal information. Additionally, authorized plan providers will not charge fees to enroll participants or to change plans.
