TV commercial targeting people with Medicare

A currently airing commercial proclaims that if you have Medicare Part A & B, you are eligible for Vision, Dental, and Prescription Drug plans because of Medicare Healthcare Reform.

This commercial gives a 1-800-number that when called tries to sell you a Life Alert type monitoring system or they may be collecting information to sell to Medicare Supplement Brokers or Medicare Advantage Plan Brokers.

Be on the lookout and share this information with your friends, neighbors, and relatives. The more people who are warned, the better the chances of protecting people from this scam.

Report healthcare fraud to the Alaska Senior Medicare Patrol at 1-800-478-6065.
