Scammers trying to sell bogus health ins PDF Print E-mail

Healthcare reform was only days old when scammers began trying to sell consumers phony health insurance policies, a U.S. health insurance company warns

Brien Shanahan, director of legal affairs at Medical Mutual of Ohio, says bogus health insurance policy pitches may come via e-mail, online ads, people going door-to-door, or telemarketers.

"The scam may include fake coverage, where you end up making huge payments for a worthless piece of paper with totally worthless benefits," Shanahan says in a statement.

"Some may even offer enticements such as 'medical discount' cards, which are also worthless."

To prevent becoming a victim of healthcare reform fraud Shanahan advises to:

-- Always investigate the policy and never buy insurance online or over the telephone.

-- Never buy health insurance based on suspicious mailers, fliers or ads.

-- Do not respond to high-pressure or fear tactics.

-- Never reveal Social Security numbers.

-- Shop around and compare coverage.

-- Verify the company's license with the state.
