Today, Zane Benefits, the number one online small business health benefits solution, published new information on ObamaCare scams tips.
According to Zane Benefits’ website, many small business owners are still confused about ObamaCare. And unfortunately when there is confusion and fear, there are scammers looking to take advantage.
The type of scams include fake navigators, false health insurance exchange websites, email pitches, Medicare scams, and various ObamaCare health insurance signup cons.
Though many of the scams are aimed at consumers and the elderly, small business owners are also a target.
1. Understand how ObamaCare impacts your small business
Armed with a clear understanding of your requirements and options under ObamaCare, a small business is much less vulnerable to scammers.
2. Be cautious of unsolicited calls, texts, or emails
Most of the scams are happening by phone, text, and email. They involve scare tactics aimed at getting people to hand over sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or bank account information.
3. Watch out for online phishing and website scams
Numerous official-looking websites have popped up, claiming to provide information on ObamaCare with the intent of stealing information. Most of these website scams have been shut down by the government, but it's expected that more fake sites will surface again in the coming months.
4. Work with a trusted, licensed broker
The last tip to protect a small business from these ObamaCare scams is to work with a trusted and licensed health insurance broker, agent, or consultant.
