Beware of Medicare Open Enrollment Scams

The annual open enrollment period for Medicare began on October 15th and will continue until December 7th. This is the only time during the year that people enrolled in Medicare are able to change their Medicare health plans, Medigap plans and prescription drug plans. Those already enrolled in Medicare should have received an Annual Notice of Change from their health insurance providers describing any changes to their plans. If you are satisfied with your plans and coverage, you do not need to do anything.

Avoid Tech Support Scammers

Hey computer users, it’s time for a pop quiz. A) You get an urgent call or email from a tech support company, saying your computer has a problem. Should you give the company remote access to your computer to make repairs? B) A warning announcing “suspicious activity” or “security threat detected” appears on your computer screen. Should you call the number shown on the screen to talk to a technician? C) One of these tech support companies asks you to pay for its services, maybe by using a gift card (like from iTunes or Amazon) or wire transfer. Should you? The answer to all of these questions is “No.”
