DUPONT, Wash. – The Better Business Bureau is warning Washingtonians about an increase in fraudulent activity related to the launch of the Affordable Care Act. The open enrollment period begins on Oct. 1, 2013, and scammers understand that many Americans are confused about their rights and responsibilities with the new program.
BBB serving Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington prescribes the following:
- Don’t pay for free advice; trained and certified helpers are not allowed to charge for their services.
- Hold onto current insurance cards; coverage will continue and there is no need for special new insurance or Medicare cards.
- Learn the difference between medical discount plans and health insurance plans; discount plans alone will not satisfy the law’s minimum coverage requirements.
- Hang up on “government officials” who call, text or email to “verify” personal information; government agencies will never make these types of requests.
