Happy National Consumer Protection Week! Now’s a great time to brush up on your Medicare rights and protections, and take action to protect your identity.
Here are 3 things to do:
1. Protect your identity. Identity theft happens when someone uses your personal information without your consent to commit fraud or other crimes. Guard your Medicare Number and card, and keep your Social Security Number safe.
2. Help fight Medicare fraud. Use your MyMedicare account to stay on top of your claims. If you find errors or fraud, report it to us. Don’t have a MyMedicare account yet? Sign up for free at MyMedicare.gov today.
3. Know your rights. You have certain rights and protections designed to make sure you get the health care services the law says you can get.
