Help Your Clients Avoid Scams After Receiving New Medicare Cards

With the passage of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will be issuing new Medicare Cards to all beneficiaries over the next two years. While this change is being made to help protect individuals from fraud, experts are warning that this is providing an excellent opportunity for scammers.

You can help your clients avoid these scams by making sure they keep the following tips in mind.

  • Medicare recipients do not need to do anything. Their new card will be sent automatically.
  • No payment of any kind is required. There is no need to provide a credit card or bank account information.
  • They will not be contacted in person or via phone. They will not be asked to verify their Social Security Number.
