The following is an important message about Medicare Fraud from the Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office:
“New Medicare cards with new Medicare Numbers are now being mailed. Your new card will automatically come. You do not need to do anything as long as your address is up to date. If you need to update your address, visit your My Social Security Account at https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount. Visit to sign up to receive an email when your new Medicare card has been mailed. The website also features a map of where mailing has been completed, where Medicare is mailing now and where it will be mailing soon. According to the map, Medicare will be mailing to Massachusetts soon.
Scam artists may try to get personal information by contacting you about your new card. Medicare will never call you and ask you to give personal or private information in order for your new card to be issued. If someone asks you for your information, for money, or threatens to cancel your health benefits if you do not share your personal information, hang up and call Medicare at 1-800-633-4227.”
