Health care company scam

I received a phone call from someone saying they were with my healthcare provider (by name) and that "I was due for a prescription renewal". When I asked "which prescription?" the line went dead. Even tho this sounded like a legitimate call from my healthcare company I doubt that it was. Don't assume anyone is legit just because they name your doctor, insurance company, or even the community you live, in as it may not be. I suspect they'd have gotten around to asking for my medicare number or something else that was sensitive.

Thanks for sharing - all sorts of scammers out there. And - have you gotten you new Blue & White Medicare card yet?
 
Yeah Cycle, been getting that one for about a year or so, but hang up on them. Bet they're eventually going to want to 'verify' my medicare number.

If I am not too busy, I like to talk to them. Tell them I have not received it. Also ask if they can get me a metal one so I won't lose it.

They do want the number so I told him I needed to get my glasses - couldn't read it. He waited - then I said would get my wife to read for him. But, she's in the bathroom - can you please hold.

Amazing how long they will wait
 
I hate these calls as I'm hearing impaired and they're almost always speaking in a foreign accent making it even tougher to understand them. Think I'm gonna start using Cycle's idea.
