BE EMPOWERED — RETIRE WITH CONFIDENCE

4. Be Empowered – Retire With Confidence – Be Aware of Fraud Scams


Be aware of fraud scams. If you’re already on Medicare, keep in mind that Medicare’s Open Enrollment Period, which runs from October 15 through December 7, is a prime time for scammers. Open Enrollment is the only time during the year when you can change your prescription drug plan (Part D), or switch from a Medicare Advantage plan (Part C) to Original Medicare with a Medicare Supplement plan.

To avoid being scammed or having your identity stolen, remember:

The fact is, if you’re already covered by Medicare, it is illegal for someone to try to sell you coverage through the health insurance marketplaces.
