Health News By Kathy Steinke

In an effort to prevent fraud and identity theft, Medicare is taking Social Security numbers off of the identification cards of that are used to access health care by 58 million Americans.† Itís good news for a government program that is routinely targeted by crooks and scam artists who like to prey on seniors and others.† Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services started phasing in the new cards with random numbers and letters this year with all enrollees expected to be issued new Medicare cards by April 2019.† The bad news is that this will be a long 19 months for advocates now bracing for a new wave of criminal activity triggered by the transition of the new cards.† If you are on Medicare, you are about to become a target of scammers who will try to take advantage of the change and steal your personal information.† Scam artists pretending to be Medicare or Social Security representatives may call requesting individuals to verify Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and more for enrollees to receive the new cards.† They may threaten that benefits will be lost or services delayed without verification.† The best advice is:† Donít fall for it and hang up the phone!† Officials with Medicare, Social Security or the Internal Revenue Service will never cold call you.† Donít be a willing target!
