As Minnesotans begin shopping for health insurance, MNsure released some tips on how to avoid healthcare scams.
Two weeks ago, I wrote about about health scams that were already hitting the state, particularly seniors.
Here are the tips from MNsure:
- "You should never be asked to pay for assistance getting health insurance coverage through MNsure. If you are asked to pay for assistance, keep a record of the person’s name, who he or she works for, the telephone number, street address, mailing address, e-mail address, and website. Call the MNsure contact center at 1-855-366-7873 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with this information."
- "If you are suspicious of any information you are receiving about MNsure, stop the conversation and call the MNsure contact center at 1-855-366-7873."
