Protect Your Medicare – Follow These Tips to Prevent Medicare ID Fraud

Follow these steps to prevent Medicare ID fraud:

  • Keep your Medicare and Social Security cards secure.
  • Don’t share your numbers with anyone but your health care team.
  • If someone calls and asks for your Medicare information, hang up. Medicare will only call you if you’ve called and left a message or a representative said that someone will call you back.
  • Check your statements carefully and log into to spot any possible fraud or billing mistakes.
  • Report suspicious activities by calling our California Senior Medicare Patrol at 1-855-613-7080.
