A: First, never divulge your personal information to anyone who calls or visits to offer Medicare services.

Never reveal:

  • your Medicare number
  • your specific Medicare plan
  • your Social Security number
  • your credit card numbers or banking information; or
  • your home address or email address.

If you’re suspicious about the legitimacy of a phone call or solicitor at your door, call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). Generally speaking, your private insurer or Medicare professionals won’t call you. If you have questions, you’ll initiate the contact.
