TRI-CITIES, Wash.-- Medicare Open Enrollment began on October 15 and now the Better Business Bureau says scammers are taking advantage of the confusion some people face when trying to enroll.
The BBB said scammers may call patients and request personal information such as bank accounts, Social Security Numbers, or insurance numbers.
"Your benefits will not change, you will not have to pay for your cards and your open enrollment is open from now until December 7th," said Kirstin Davis, Marketplace Director Eastern Washington Region for the Better Business Bureau.
Davis recommends people report suspicious phone calls or emails to law enforcement or to the Better Business Bureau.
