Medicare fraud affects everyone. You can team up with Medicare to help. Our Senior Medicare Patrol volunteers are teaching people like you how to spot, report, and stop fraud, and protect themselves from identity theft. Here are some things you can do: Guard your Medicare and Social Security numbers.  Treat them like you would treat your credit cards . Hang up the phone if someone calls and asks for your Medicare number, Social Security number, or bank or credit card information. We will  NEVER  call and ask for this information, and we will  NEVER  call you or come to your home uninvited to sell Medicare products. Be suspicious of anyone who offers you free medical equipment or services and then requests your Medicare number.  It’s illegal, and it’s not worth it! Do not let anyone borrow or pay you to use your Medicare ID card or your identity. Check your Medicare claims for errors. Look at your Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) or statements from your Medicare plan. You can also check  www.MyMedicare.gov  or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) as soon as your claims have been processed. The sooner you see and report errors, the sooner we can stop fraud. TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048. Call 1-800-MEDICARE to report any suspected fraud. Learn more  about spotting and reporting fraud, and get tips on protecting yourself from identity theft.
