Fighting Medicare scams
The Better Business Bureau is warning senior citizens about potential scams with their Medicare cards.
The BBB says in order to combat the problem, new Medicare cards are coming in this mail this month. The new cards will no longer include the person's social security number, but rather, an ID number in order to prevent identity theft.
"Everyone that is on Medicare will be getting a new card,” said Robert Obregon with the BBB. “They do not have to pay for it. They do not have to report or verify their information."
If you have any concerns about your Medicare card, call the Better Business Bureau at 969-1804, or visit mymedicare.gov.
