Medicare Identity Theft Can Disrupt Your Medical Care and Waste Tax Payer Dollars (SPANISH)

August 28, 2018

If You Spot Unusual or Questionable Charges, Contact Your Health Care Provider

Public Service Announcement – Spanish

Dear PSA Director,

Medicare is mailing new Medicare cards to all people with Medicare. The new card will have a new unique Medicare Number instead of a Social Security Number. This will help to protect from identity theft.

Medicare recipients should only give the new Medicare Number to trusted people like doctors, pharmacists, health care providers, or insurers. 

If you suspect Medicare fraud, contact the Department of Health & Human Services Office of Inspector General at 1-800-447-8477 (1-800-HHS-TIPS) or online at oig.hhs.gov/fraud/hotline.

Please help protect your viewer’s personal information by placing this PSA in heavy rotation between late August to Wednesday, October 31, 2018.

Thank you in advance for your support.

 The Department of Health & Human Services.

SONÓ EL TELÉFONO Y ERA UNA MUJER. ME ESTABA DICIENDO QUE ME VA A MANDAR UNA RODILLERA. ELLA ME PIDIÓ LA INFORMACIÓN DEL MEDICAID Y TODO, ELLA ME HABLO EN ESPAÑOL, ENTONCES, YO LE DI TODA MI INFORMACIÓN. LAS ESTAFAS COMO ESTAS OCURREN CADA DÍA. USTED TIENE EL PODER DE PREVENIR ESTOS CRIMENES. NO RESPONDA A SOLICITUDES DE SU NÚMERO DE MEDICARE U OTRA INFORMACIÓN PERSONAL DE INDIVIDUOS O GRUPOS  DESCONOCIDOS. SI VE ACTIVIDAD SOSPECHOSA, REPÓRTELA INMEDIATAMENTE. JUNTOS PODEMOS LUCHAR CONTRA EL ROBO DE IDENTIDAD MÉDICA.
