MONTHLY REMINDER

Beware of Genetic Testing Medicare Scam

Medicare has issued a warning about a scam involving genetic testing. Scammers tell you that Medicare will pay for genetic testing, and ask for your Medicare number and other information in order to conduct or order the tests for you. They are contacting people through telemarketing, wellness fairs and door-to-door solicitations.



However, Medicare does not pay for genetic testing that has not been ordered by your doctor as medically necessary. If you accept this "free" offer, you could end up paying thousands of dollars because Medicare rejects the claim. In addition, the scammers will have your personal information, which they can use for a variety of fraudulent purposes. So if you are offered a "free" test, refuse. If a test kit you did not request is delivered to you, don't accept delivery or return it to sender.



In general, it is important to be alert to the possibility of fraud. Things that seem too good to be true often are. And never give out personal information, including your Medicare number, unless you are certain the person to whom you are giving it is legitimate. For more information or to report suspected fraud, call 1-800-MEDICARE.
