The Social Security Administration will be starting the process of sending out new Medicare cards in April. The Christian County TRIAD wants to make sure residents are on their toes for scammers that could use this process for personal gain.
Rich Peters with the Christian County TRIAD, along with Taylorville Police Chief Brian Hile appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show. Peters says one important piece of information that has been on the card in the past will no longer be on the card.
Peters says one thing to remember about Medicare cards when it comes to scams is that there’s no cost to getting a card.
Peters says the biggest key to keeping yourself from becoming a victim of these possible scams is to not give out any information over the phone.
