Medicare patients need to be wary of scams.
Tampa Florida (PRWEB) April 07, 2012
Seminole, Florida based telemedicine specialist MD247 issued a warning to Medicare recipients regarding a ripoff scam being perpetrated against diabetic Medicare recipients.
In a review of source information for a series of articles discussing diabetes mellitus, MD247 staff stumbled upon a spate of warnings regarding scammers and ripoff artists attempting to defraud patients with the lure of free diabetic supplies. Parties initiating the calls make promises of “free” glucose testing supplies, orthotics and heating pads in exchange for Medicare information. Particularly savvy scammers have gone so far as to demand the financial information of patients being called and, in most cases, they managed to put enough pressure on the patients to get the information. Needless to say, the practiced ripoff artists have either left patients paying for products they never received or paying for much more than was ever intended.
Information regarding these scams made the MD247 team sick. The MD247 team understands the realities of both types of diabetes mellitus, and would never jeopardize the health or financial stability of a patient. Just like MD247 patients, MD247 staff understands that every moment and every dollar counts.
