MHI – Q: Why would Medicare call me?

Posted by MedEd at MHI

A: They wouldn’t. People impersonating Medicare may call you, but a legitimate representative of Medicare will not contact you and ask you to verify personal information.

Telephone scammers will sometimes take a topic that has been in the news and then twist it to suit their purposes. One new scam currently making the rounds is associated with the F plan Medicare Supplement.

People who become eligible for Medicare after January 1, 2020 will not be able to purchase a Medicare Supplement that pays the Part B annual deductible like the C and the F plan. People who qualify for Medicare prior to that date may still purchase these plans. C and F plans purchased before January 1, 2020 will be grandfathered – the plans will continue as they are and pay the Part B deductible for you.

Some of our members have received calls from other companies telling them that our F plan is going away. The caller convinces them to cancel their F plan with us and purchase a different plan from them. Don’t fall for this! You can keep your F plan with us, or if you prefer, you can drop down to a plan with less benefits.
