Medicare open enrollment brings the scammers out in full force. This is the time of year (until Dec. 7)
to decide whether to keep your current Medicare plan or make changes to it. Even though the deadline for making changes might have ended by the time you read
this, scammers have all kinds of tricks up their sleeves: • hey might try to tell you that open enrollment runs
through the end of December.
• Thieves might say that new cards will be coming with
a new number (that part is true), but that you have to pay for the new card (that part is a lie). The card is free.
• They might claim to be from Medicare & say that you won’t get your new card until you can verify the number on your existing card. They’ll expect you to read them all that information over the phone.
• If you pay your premium with automatic Easy Pay, scammers might try to tell you that your banking information has to be entered into the system because of the new card, & that you need to give them your bank information again. If you don’t, they might say, your payment won’t go through & you’ll be late & you might even have your Medicare cut off.
• If you get any phone calls with people telling you things like this, HANG UP. They are scammers, calling to get you to disclose your personal information.
One other warning: Your caller ID is no longer accurate. Scammers have  gured out how to make any number show up, even your local hospital or the Medicare of ce. They might be in a foreign country & make your caller ID look like they’re calling from next door. Beware, & be very careful.
