We have another New Medicare Fraud Alert for you. This one is from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and is translated into 18 additional languages. Californian beneficiaries have reported a substantial increase in the number of suspicious calls related to the new Medicare cards. This alert is translated into so many languages because our beneficiaries who speak languages other than English are even more at risk for being scammed. Armed with this simple, clear information and 5 helpful tips, our California beneficiaries can avoid being scammed and stay safe.
If you can share these alerts with your residents, clients, colleagues, family members and friends, we greatly appreciate your help in getting the word out to prevent fraud.
To read the alerts in English and 18 other languages, you can visit the California Health Advocates website here: https://cahealthadvocates.org/new-medicare-cards-same-old-scammers/
