Protect Yourself from Fraud with $250 Medicare Rebate Check

When Medicare enrollees reach the coverage gap for their prescription drugs in 2010 they will receive a check for $250 to help bridge this gap.  This point has already been reached by many who have been able to use the check for help maintaining the prescription drugs that they need.  However, some who have received this check have been the victims of scams that you should be aware of.
Consider the following statement that was placed on Medicare’s official website: “You don’t need to provide any personal information like your Medicare, Social Security, or bank account numbers to get the rebate check. Don’t give your personal information to anyone who calls you about the $250 rebate check.”  In short, nobody should be speaking to you about your rebate, it is yours and the business of nobody else.
This is very important to keep from giving any information to anyone that could harm you or your finances.  Remember that you will not have to fill out any forms or take any phone calls to process this rebate, when you reach the coverage gap a check will automatically be mailed to you.  Don’t fall victim to these harmful practices, protect yourself and the money that is owed to you.
